Ever wonder what it’s like to sit in a room and dream up a world, fill it with characters, put them in dire trouble, and then see them through to the end? This class is designed with two ends in mind. One, you will come away with at least one completed draft of your own original show. Two, you will do this by working in teams, which gives you a taste of what it’s like working in television (which involves crafting story with a team of writers).
After exploring the basic forms of broadcast and cable television, the class will brainstorm ideas, choose projects, and develop them into pilot episodes. You are encouraged to bring a love of television and the full power of your imagination.
Upon completion of the course, you will have, at the minimum, a completed first draft of a pilot script for your original show.
The format of this course is 100% online.
