Course Description

Making people laugh can often be a difficult but rewarding writing challenge. Using a collaborative approach, we will conceive, develop, and outline an original sitcom pilot script for television. Early classes will focus on developing overall concepts, story elements, and characters as writers work up to drafting an outline. We will also analyze pilots of existing network shows by reading scripts in order to gain a better understanding of world-building, character development, and story beats. Table reads during class will help determine what is working as well as any potential opportunities for improvement.
