About this course:In television, you invite characters and their world into your living room to share the couch. They become your friends. You invite them back in on a regular basis because you have bonded with them: their issues and the obstacles to solving them become yours. Most importantly, their world is an essential leading character that becomes your own world. Familiarity is key. A series has to hit the nail on the head in inventing a story that is fresh, but still understand what has gone before it historically in the genre, effectively climbing the rungs of the previous generation to introduce the new one. By the end of this course, you have a refined pitch that captures the essence and uniqueness of your original series.
