Ready for Prime Time: Writing the Dramatic TV Episode

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 in to the world of that show - watching allof 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, adn finally writing a draft of an hour-long TV episode.
