About this course:

How do you create a narrative dramatic series, sell it, and have the series made, all while keeping your vision a priority in every aspect of the creative process? This is the role of the showrunner—the lead producer/writer on a television or digital series, responsible for the creative vision along with the business and logistical aspects of a series. There is currently a high demand for skilled showrunners, and in this workshop, we focus on demystifying what a showrunner does. This workshop is set-up as a boot camp in intensity, exploring the breath of knowledge a showrunner needs using hands-on exercises, lectures, viewing of footage including dailies and rough cuts, discussing the pilot script and series writing process, giving notes on scripts, as well as covering the practical issues of production, maximizing budgets, and overall series logistics.
