Do you have a great idea for Netflix or Amazon’s next hit series? Let successful TV writer Tyler Dinucci (American Gods, Drop Dead Diva) help you transform your brilliant premise into a page-turning script! In this 7-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.

Tyler 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. Students can work on a 1/2 hour comedy, dramedy or 1 hour drama pilot in this class.

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 in addition to this class.
