One of the most common ways that new writers break into the entertainment business is by writing spec scripts for a current project.  The Writers Guild Of America requires that every season, all episodic series producers must hire a mandated minimum of freelance writers.  This is an excellent opportunity for new writers to break into the business and allows producers to see that a writer can execute a story idea within the parameters of a current show. Writing spec scripts can be fun; being familiar with the show's premise and characters gives the writer a jumpstart on capturing the style and tone of the show.  

This class examines the techniques and strategies used in the writing of a spec script as well as how to get the script in the hands of agents and producers.  Topics include writing style and template formatting, diversity of style, dissecting a show, the three act story structure, resources for spec writers, selling the script and establishing contacts within the business.
