The course goal is to learn how to write an effective and compelling pilot and the emphasis is placed on complex characterization, structure, story, and the potential for future episodes and seasons. Students gain an in-depth understanding of the marketplace and where their series concept may be best suited. The ability to create an effective outline, pilot and pitch is a critical skill for the professional writer. So sign up today and take one step closer to Writing for Television!
