What It's About: Though the title may imply that this show is writer-centric, its scope is much broader, including interviews with filmmakers of every stripe.
Why You Should Care: If you're interested in movies, this is among the best interview shows you can find. Host Elvis Mitchell takes an expansive look at his interviewees' lives -- upbringing, education, relationships, etc. -- and explores how these things have influenced their work, their style, and the career choices they've made. More than most other interview shows, The Treatment places film and filmmaker in context with each other.
