You have all the elements of a great Spec: a great show, an original premise and a solid beat sheet. Unfortunately, the thought of actually writing the spec draft fills you with dread every time you stare down at the blank screen. No problem!
Devanshi Patel (ABC/Disney Fellow, God Friended Me, Blackish) will take you through the paces in this eight-week Los Angeles TV Spec Draft Writing Workshop. She will help you hone your beat sheets, turn them into an outline, and craft your fresh new take on an existing show with pizazz. Devanshi will also show you how to write that killer opening scene and turn your detailed roadmap into literary gold. Students will also be put in study groups to keep you on track week to week. By the end of the class, you’ll have made progress on your first draft and be on your to way to revising it. Fellowship invitation not included.
