Do you have a great idea for HBO’s next hit series? Let successful TV writer Daniel McLellan (Lost in Space) help you transform your brilliant premise into a page-turning script! In this 5-week Los Angeles TV Pilot Development Class, you’ll learn how to craft a great logline, structure a compelling story, plan a season arc that keeps the audience hooked, and break your pilot story just like they do in the writer’s room.
Daniel will show you how to enhance the comedy or drama and sprinkle in the right amount of plot, character and story for a one-hour or half hour show. Through in-class work shopping and pitching, you’ll clarify your tone, voice and world. By the end of this class, you’ll have created a beat sheet for your TV Pilot and everything you need to pitch it to boot.
20 padders have been staffed & 9 won fellowships at ABC, Fox, CBS and NBC after taking our TV classes.
