Advanced Screenwriting: Writing for Television

CWR 405/VIS 405

Info tab content
This workshop class will introduce students to the fundamental elements of developing and writing a TV series in the current "golden age of television." Students will watch television pilots, read pilot episodes and engage in in-depth discussions about story, series engine, season arcs, character, structure, tone and dialogue, which will be applied to their work. Each student will formulate and pitch an original series idea, write and rewrite a detailed treatment of the concept, and complete the first 30 pages of the pilot episode by end of semester. Students will read all drafts of each other's work and give verbal feedback every week.
