Instructor Statement:

Are you ready to become a working television writer? You only need two attributes: Talent and Tenacity. If you have the ability to tell a killer story and give your characters a passionate voice, then you have the talent. And if you’re willing to sacrifice your social life to write and then re-write and re-write again, and combine that with the drive to do whatever it takes to get that script produced, then you have the tenacity. My class is a bootcamp, where, if you truly commit, you will be able to turn out an hour dramatic script that will be the first step in getting you a job in the industry. After you learn all the basics — pitch, story, act structure, how to make your characters come alive — you will also learn how to get your work out there and read by the right people. I have written and produced over two hundred hours of television and I know that show-runners are always looking to hire great writers. So… are you ready? Then let’s get to work!
