Do you have a great idea for HBO’s next hit series? Let successful TV writer Miki Johnson (Ozark, Ray Donovan, 1 Script) help you transform your brilliant premise into a page-turning script! In this 5-week Online TV Drama Pilot 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 writers’ room.

Miki 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 workshopping and pitching, you’ll clarify your tone, voice and world. By the end of this class, you will have created an outline for an irresistible TV Drama pilot.

109 padders have been staffed & 48 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 in addition to this class.
