What you can learn.

  • Write a full beat outline for the series's pilot episode
  • Begin writing your original pilot script

About this course:

Anyone who wants to work as a professional television writer has to be able to submit top-notch original material to agents and showrunners. In this fast-paced course, you take your idea for a one-hour TV series and turn it into an outline, write intensively, and get feedback from the instructor and fellow participants every week. Throughout this process, you learn how to envision the world of your show; create characters and conflict; build a storytelling engine; and nail down your show's structure, tone, story, and act breaks. By the end of the course, you have strong act breaks, a full beat outline, and a critique of the first ten pages of your original one-hour pilot script. 
Prerequisites
