It’s fellowship season again, a time when legions of aspiring TV Writers battle for a coveted spot in the Writer’s Rooms of ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox on the hottest new shows. Unfortunately the process is grueling (application, resume, personal statement, spec and original material samples, references, multiple elimination rounds, and endless interviews) and only a fraction of a percent are selected. What you need is your own personal Yoda to help you train.
In this two-week Los Angeles TV Writers Fellowship Bootcamp, Devanshi Patel (2014 ABC Fellow, BLACKISH, God Friended Me) takes you through the process, finding your compelling personal story, and prepping you for the most grueling interviews of your life. By the end of the class, you will be ready to present the best you to the selection committee and break through the sound barrier. Fellowship spot not included.
