Pre-requisite: Beat sheet for a 1/2 hour or hour-long comedy, drama, or dramedy finished in TV 1, TV Drama 1, or TV Comedy 1 at Writing Pad. No projects that have not been vetted in a Writing Pad TV 1 class.
You have a killer beat sheet for your TV Pilot, but when you sit down to write, everything turns to mush: vague characters, huge data dumps, clunky dialogue, and scenes that go nowhere. If this sounds familiar, let successful TV writer Stephanie Kornick (Transparent) help you transform your brilliant premise into a page-turning script!
In this ten-week Online TV Draft Writing Workshop, you’ll get Stephanie’s help crafting an amazing outline and writing scenes that have a complete beginning, middle and end and pack a serious punch. You’ll learn to how to open your pilot, capture the imagination of the reader, write with a clear voice and introduce your main character like a pro. By the end of the class you should have major chunks or your pilot written and the confidence to finish it with flair. Emmy not included.
109 padders have been staffed & 48 won fellowships at ABC, Fox, CBS and NBC after taking our TV classes.
