Writing for TV Level 1

In this class students will write a spec script for an existing show.  All aspects of the process will be covered, from coming up with original stories, to pitching an episode idea, outlining it, writing a first draft, then rewriting it based on feedback.  The class will be run as closely to a real writers’ room as possible, with feedback from all students encouraged, as this is part of the actual sitcom writing process.  At the end of the class, students will walk away with a full spec script.

Students will be expected to participate extensively in class discussions.  

In addition to 8 group meetings, class also includes a half-hour one-on-one session with instructor at the conclusion of 8 weeks to go over the entire script point by point.
