About this course:

Television storytelling is undergoing significant shifts in the early twenty-first century, but the basics of structuring satisfying narratives are rooted in human psychology and are timeless. This vigorous ten-week course exposes and explores the underpinnings of classic cinematic story arcs in current, serialized shows (titles subject to change). At the same time, each student methodically practices the foundational, industry-standard skills required to create a high-quality series by developing characters and narrative arcs for an original TV show in their own unique voice.
