If this sounds familiar, veteran screenwriter and TV writer Steven Peros (22 scripts sold, The Lot) can help. In this ten-week Los Angeles TV Draft Writing Workshop, you’ll get Steven’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.
