Course Catalog

Writing the TV Pilot

Intermediate | In this course, we’ll discuss what makes an exciting and intriguing television pilot screenplay and critique each other’s work. The first three weeks of the class will be seminar and discussion of a range of pilots such as Mad Men, Atlanta, Game of Thrones, and Broad City, and the rest of the class will be devoted to workshop of your pilots-in-progress. We’ll also cover ways to market your series.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
