You have a killer beat sheet for your TV Pilot, but when sit down to write, everything turns to mush: vague characters, huge data dumps, clunky dialogue, and scenes that go nowhere. If this sounds familiar, TV writer Mike Benner can help. He’s written on Bob’s Burgers, Gravity Falls and Danger Mouse. In this ten-week Los Angeles TV Draft Writing Workshop, you’ll get Mike’s help crafting an amazing outline and writing scenes that have a complete beginning, middle and end and pack a serious punch.
