Do you have a great idea for Netflix or Amazon’s next hit series? Let successful TV writer Alicia Carroll (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Film Independent: Project Involve & Women In Film Fellow) help you transform your brilliant premise into a page-turning script! In this 5 week Online TV Pilot writing 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.

Alicia will show you how to dramatize and sprinkle in the right amount of plot, character and story for a one-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. Students can work on a 1/2 hour comedy, dramedy or 1 hour drama pilot in this class.

123 padders have been staffed & 57 won fellowships at ABC, Fox, CBS and NBC after taking our TV classes.
