What you can learn.

  • Compose a pitch document for a television series with global appeal
  • Tailor your series to an international market of your choice
  • Develop industry-standard tools that help you thrive in the global television village

About this course:

When Netflix flipped the switch and went live in 130 countries, television content changed forever. Going global to that degree with no international television shows fired up audiences' appetite for local language production. The Internet has uniquely enabled a new golden era of television, and we, the storytellers, are in high demand. But even though the content is local, the tools to develop and write have not fundamentally changed and are pretty much universal. In this workshop you compose a pitch document for a television series, documentary or fiction, comedy, or drama. With a character breakdown, pilot synopsis, and overview of the seasons, you tailor this pitch document to the specific international market that could have the best chances of success.  You also develop industry-standard tools that work and are effective in this global village.
