Do you have a great idea for Netflix or Amazon’s next hit series? Let successful TV writer Steven Peros (22 scripts sold, The Lot) help you transform your brilliant premise into a page-turning script! In this 5-week Online TV Pilot Development Workshop, 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.
Steven will show you how to enhance the comedy or drama and sprinkle in the right amount of plot, character and story for a one-hour or half 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 and everything you need to pitch it to boot.
112 padders have been staffed & 49 won fellowships at ABC, Fox, CBS and NBC after taking our TV classes.
Note: If you’ve never taken a TV writing class before, we strongly recommend you take TV 101 or TV Comedy 101, and TV Structure for Pilot Writing or TV Character Driven Stories or TV: Dialogue Bootcamp in addition to this class.
