About this course:

If you want to break into the business of writing one-hour dramas, you need at least one pilot script in your portfolio.  In this fast-paced, exciting workshop, you develop your rough idea into an original television series. Brainstorming with other writers in a creative and positive environment, you test your franchise to see if it can generate 100 episodes, build compelling characters, "break" a strong pilot story, and draw upon your own sensibilities, unique voice, and life experiences to make your work stand out in the crowd. On the business side, you practice pitching your pilot ideas, gain insights into the ever-expanding TV marketplace, and experience the creative benefits (and the fun) of participating in a collaborative, supportive TV "writers' room"--working the same way that professional writers do. By the end of four days, you'll have a clear, concise pitch for your original series plus a solid story outline for your pilot episode. Bring to class two-to-three original concepts that you want to develop.
