Primary Instructor:

The students will write an episode of an existing one-hour television show selected by the instructor. The course covers the entire process of writing for television, from learning the structure and voice of the show, pitching stories for it, writing an extensive outline (or beat sheet) for the episode, and finally writing an authentic script in the proper format. The students are the 'writer's room' for all scripts in process.

Requirements: At least two teleplays, and work at rewriting at least one of these. The class will read the teleplays and view multiple episodes of the shows being written by members of the class. Students will read and discuss each other's work. Students can expect to write the equivalent of ten pages a week.
