Introduction to Writing for TV (Online)

This unique course is designed for creative aspiring writers with no prior experience, as well as those with screenwriting experience, wishing to break into television writing. Learn in an interactive environment the basics of creating, writing, and presenting your first television script for both drama and/or comedy, including how to take your idea to the next step and create a complete half-hour or one-hour television script.

The course will cover:

• The steps usually taken for a first-time television writer towards writing the first script (general idea, character development, style, story acts, etc.)
• Structure
• Character development
• The importance of your first script as a calling card
• How to find an agent and get your script read
• Who should you be writing for
• Who does what job on a television series
• The outlets for new shows and new ideas
• Developing your idea
• The best way to write for you
• The Writers’ Room
• The collaboration processes
• Overview of winning past and current television show scripts
• Feedback on your current concepts, outline, scenes and scripts

Students will be emailed several TV scripts in PDF format after the first-class session (and possibly more during the course) to be read if possible before the next class. We’ll also be viewing videos related to the topics throughout the class.
