In this class, you will learn how to write an original half-hour comedy pilot, and have a completed draft by the end of the class! We’ll go through every stage of the process, from formulating your idea, structuring that idea into an outline, and bringing that outline to life in script form. The instructor will be giving detailed notes and feedback, but everyone in the class will also be encouraged to provide notes and pitches, to simulate the collaborative nature of a TV writers’ room. By the end of the class, you will have a thirty to thirty-five-page pilot that you can use as a sample, as something to try and get produced, or maybe you just want to print it out and stare at it! Whatever you do with it, this class will help you write an awesome pilot.
Keeping up with the writing assignments is critical for this class, especially in the later sessions. There will also be some light required reading and watching.
There is work outside of class, preparing sketches for presentation in every class and viewing sketch videos. This online course uses Google Classroom and Google Meet programs to conduct live sessions with your instructor and fellow students.
