“Hunger Games” screenwriter Billy Ray on how Democrats should message to win elections




“Hunger Games” screenwriter Billy Ray, joins us to talk about how Democrats can better message in order to win elections. In addition to being an accomplished Hollywood writer-director, Billy has been assisting dozens of Democratic candidates and members of Congress to hone their messaging. He has great advice, and shares a lot of it in this interview.

In addition to his work on “Hunger Games,” Billy also wrote, directed, and executive-produced Showtime’s “The Comey Rule,” which had the biggest debut of any limited series in that network’s history. Ray’s films as writer, co-writer, or writer-director include “Richard Jewell,” “Shattered Glass,” and “Breach.” And Billy has a new mini-series coming out next year on Showtime about the January 6th attack on the US Capitol.
