One-Hour TV Intensive III


Develop story documents and an outline for a script for an original pilot one-hour TV series in this fast-paced, intensive workshop.


What you can learn.

  • Refine your original pilot idea into a unique series concept
  • Learn how to capture the essence of your show in the first moments of the pilot
  • Incorporate standard TV script act structure to write like the pros
  • Give and receive feedback on your pilot in progress

About this course:

In this intensive workshop, you write a solid outline of your pilot script and work on drafting the first ten pages. You begin by refining your story idea and outline as needed and then write your teaser, all the while focusing on capturing the essence of the show through its act structure, plot and story, multiple storylines, characters, scenes, and dialogue. By the end of the course, you have strong act breaks, a full beat outline, and a critique of the first 10 pages of your original one-hour pilot script.
SCRIPT X 421.3 One-Hour TV I and SCRIPT X 421.4 One-Hour TV II; or equivalent, or department approval.
