Whether you want to break into the business of writing 1-hour dramas or half-hour comedies, you need that original pilot script in your portfolio. In this exciting, focused, and collaborative workshop, learn the requirements involved in creating a great television series. Test your concept to see if it has "legs" to last for 100 episodes; build strong characters and then put them in a strong pilot story; and use your own sensibilities, unique voice, and life experiences to make your work stand out in the crowd. On the business side, focus on pitching your pilot ideas, get a handle on the ever-changing television marketplace, and learn how to conduct yourself in a professional writer's room situation. By the end of 4 days, you have a detailed outline for your TV series pilot--one that just might open a lot of doors for your writing career. Students should bring to class 2-3 original concepts they want to develop.
Course may be taken as a certificate core or elective requirement.
