Writing Your TV Pilot

First impressions are the most important, and that’s especially true when it comes to the first episode of a new television series. Not only does a pilot need to hook a wide audience, but it also must serve as a general blueprint for all succeeding episodes, while establishing the show’s premise, characters, tone, and backstory. Learn tools specific to writing an original pilot, whether a network procedural, a quirky web series, or an edgy comedy for cable or a streaming service. By the end of the class, have a strong draft for a pilot for your own series.
