TV Pilot Writing Pro-Series


Take a TV pilot script from concept to completion in this intensive workshop for just 8 students.


About this course:

In a highly focused and collaborative workshop environment, you take a concept for a television series and develop it through outline, the pitch, first draft, re-write, and the final product: a polished pilot script ready to take out to agents, producers, studios, and networks. You focus on complex characterization, structure, and the pilot story and potential for future episodes, and gain an in-depth understanding of the marketplace and where your series concept may be best suited, whether multi-camera, single-camera, drama, dramedy, or animation. In addition, you pitch your ideas to guest professionals who give network level feedback. Upon completion of the course, you also submit your completed script to receive feedback by an established agent, manager, or producer.
One writing sample consisting of your best completed one-hour or half-hour television pilot, a one-to-two page personal statement, plus up to three loglines for a new project you wish to develop in the course. Participants will not be charged the full course fee unless they are selected for the series.
