The Writer Room Experience

This class will explore the process of pitching and developing Television series concepts through the utilization of conversation and storyboarding. Topics will include establishment of theme and tone, development of character, standard act structures, and creation of story areas, beat sheets and outlines. Participants will engage in several weeks of story- breaking and episode formulation, simulating the experience of an industry “Writer Room.” While Comedy development will be reviewed, Writer Room simulation will focus on the group development of an hour-long (Drama) episode concept.
