Writing for the Small Screen: from Network to Streaming
Instructor:
Resident Playwright Mary Ruth Clarke—Original Screenwriter of Meet the Parents

The third Golden Age of Television is upon us. This class is for anyone who has an idea (any genre) that could make a great series, and who wants to learn the crucial basics of how to write it.

We will study and analyze successful pilots. We will tease out/explore the inherent possibilities in your idea, where it fits in the TV landscape, how to position that idea, what makes great TV characters, visual storytelling, budgetary considerations, proper story structure, and proper formatting. 

You will leave the workshop with:

  • The makings of a television pilot
  • A better grasp of the language that writers, agents, and producers speak
