This workshop focuses on the writer as an individual in the often daunting, sometimes humbling "collaborative" world of TV writing. In this workshop, we will work on capturing the voices, rhythm, and style of varied classic TV hits, while executing class writing assignments. Students will test their discipline, motivation, and ingenuity as they complete their very own "spec script" of a show of their choice, presently on the air. Readings may include How to Write For Television by Madeline Dimaggio, The Sitcom Career Book by Mary Lou Belli and Phil Ramuno, and selections from Story by Robert McKee and How to Write a Movie in 21 Days by Viki King. Students will be required to work in Final Draft software for class projects.
