About this course:
Television executives and showrunners want to read original pilots that demonstrate your unique voice and comedic sensibilities. This workshop shows you how to take your original comedy idea and develop a strong story, rife with memorable characters and even funnier jokes. Breaking story in the style of a real writer's room, you develop a compelling story, brainstorm, and support another's vision. By the end of course, you have strong act breaks, a full beat outline, and a critique of the beginning pages of your original half-hour pilot script.
