Script 2 Script 30: The Devil Wears Prada

Our thirtieth episode has a bit of a mid-life crisis and looks back to it’s teen years. So it reached back and grabbed the novel and the film, The Devil Wears Prada.

The overarching premise is pretty straightforward. A regular girl manages to land a job at a prestigious fashion magazine as a personal assistant to the owner. What happens to her when the owner, editor is a workaholic full on bitch? Shockingly, not quitting on the very first day. We settle on the movie as just above the book as Meryl Streep does a great job bringing sympathy to the boss.
