Bell Laboratory Series (Hemo the Magnificent et al)

The conceit is that a writer (Mr. Fiction Writer) and a researcher (Dr. Research) are putting together an educational science show. We never see the writer do any actual word-craft, his material appears on a magic screen which is distinct from a more mundane movie screen on Mr. Research's side of the office. The magic screen usually displays manifestations of the writer's psyche which are science-agnostic, if not plain hostile. By the end of the show, they have been integrated back in to Mr. Writer's persona.
