NOTE: This class will be held in a live online format using the Zoom Platform
Class meets Thursdays, 5-7pm Eastern Time

Learn how to develop a TV series from an initial idea to the point that it’s ready to be pitched to networks and producers. You’ll see what goes into convincing showrunners and network executives to take the next steps to push a show forward.

Over five weeks, you will develop your show idea with the guidance of an experienced writer/producer. Learn how to craft the world, characters and story of a series and transform a concept into the structure and format of a proposal and a bible. We will also examine the difference between serialized and episodic, and how genre affects their structure. We’ll consider how much you should include in a pitch and what to hold back.

Along the way, we will examine case studies of other successful pitches and proposals, and analyze pilots that have effectively launched the world and characters of other shows. 

Leave the class with a solid foundation for your show and how to best pitch it, ready to start writing your pilot script.
