On August 1 at 1 PM I’ll be teaching a 90-minute webinar for The Writers Store on “Creating Original Series Ideas and Writing Spec Pilots.” You can listen live on your computer and submit questions. It’s $59 if you book it by July 29, and $79 after that.
This class will encapsulate all the key things I’ve learned in my years developing both half-hour and one-hour series ideas to pitch to my agents, producers, and studio and network executives — and in my experiences writing pilots, both on assignment (when I’ve been fortunate enough to sell a pitch), and on spec.
The understanding and skills I’ve developed in doing this has formed a core set of principles (which I also teach in National University’s MFA Program in Professional Screenwriting), which really isn’t readily available in any screenwriting or TV writing books, which don’t tend to focus on original series ideas.
I hope you can be there!
