Writing for Television

This class has been postponed to the summer quarter (July 3-September 8). Please check back for our summer catalog in May. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We’re in a new Golden Age of television. Now more than ever, writers hold the reins of the shows we watch (or marathon) every week. In this course, we’ll explore the fundamentals of TV writing, learn to write in the voice of existing shows as we collaborate on “spec” scripts, and develop and pitch our own original series. We’ll read great scripts, break down how they work, and have a ton of fun writing our own.

Registration dates:
