Class Description


What you'll learn in this writing class:

Writing for television is just like every other kind of dramatic writing…until it isn’t. For those intrigued by writing for the small screen, Writing for TV I is an introduction to what is universal and what is unique about television writing. The class will start by helping students create and flesh out the basics of a compelling story – a great protagonist, a great antagonist, and conflict that takes place in a powerful and exciting world. Then students will learn how to use particulars of television writing - creating a story engine, juggling multiple plots, and writing beat sheets – to further illuminate the characters and stories they have created. Students will work towards the creation of a pilot that will tell one great story while hinting at many more. Part I of a two part course.

    John is a great teacher and a fun person. Those are critical for learning. Nobody wants a teacher who is judgey or mean or just not fun. For such a short class, I learned a ton. Thanks so much John!
