About this course:

A treatment is the main foundational document that a writer needs to sell an original television series. In this intensive course, we delve into all the elements to creating a compelling TV series treatment. We discuss examples from popular TV shows to help you write your own successful treatment. This process not only helps you understand your characters and their world at a deeper level but allows you to refine your story engine to expand upon future episodes and season arcs. By the end of this course, you leave with a treatment that’s ready to pitch, along with a strategy to expand the document into an eye-catching look-book. Furthermore, we discuss ways to protect your intellectual material.
