WRITING THE TV DRAMA SERIES

THEATRST 285S

Some of the best dramatic writing today can now be found on television. This class will focus on one commercial prime-time drama, past or present. Beginning with a deep immersion into the world of that show - watching all of Season One - students break into groups, coming up with their own long stories to advance the plots. Each student will pitch a story for their particular version of "Season Two" - developing an outline, tracking their storylines with the other members of their group, and finally writing a draft of an hour-long TV episode. Each student will write his or her own script - but will need to share notes, thoughts and feedback with their fellow writers. Instructor: Bell
