You have a killer beat sheet for your TV Pilot, but when you 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 Daniel McLellan (Netflix’s Lost In Space) can help. In this eight-week Los Angeles TV Draft Writing Workshop, you’ll get Daniel’s help crafting an amazing outline and writing scenes that have a complete beginning, middle, and end that pack a serious punch.
You’ll learn to how to open your pilot, capture the imagination of the reader, write with a clear voice, and introduce your main character like a pro. By the end of the class you should have major chunks of your pilot written and the confidence to finish it with flair. Emmy not included.
