Class Description


What you'll learn in this tv writing class:

Writing for television has the potential to be not only artistically satisfying, but lucrative as well—just ask Aaron Sorkin from "The Newsroom," Zakiyyah Alexander from "Grey's Anatomy,"or Joshua Allen from "Empire.". This class is your opportunity to learn the structure and language of television writing so you can work to join the ranks of these distinguished playwrights-turned-television writers.

This class might be for you if you:

  • Are a playwright who wants the tools to transition from stage to screen.
  • Need a stronger grasp of the components of this form and want to start writing.

In this class, you will:

  • Discuss the elements of a television script, particularly focusing on structure, form, and language.
  • Do exercises to understand the form and put these elements into practice.
  • Bring in a basic pilot idea that you would like to explore within class, addressing character, story arc, structure, and what a pilot would look like and need to include.

By the end of this class you will have:

  • A broad understanding of the components of television writing.
  • A strong first draft of your pilot and the tools to continue writing and developing your work.
