This five-part “Screenwriting 201” series will guide students through the development process of turning their ideas into a solid one-hour television series concept. Storytelling structure will be used not as a template, but as a device to create a beat sheet outline. Students will then focus on the steps needed to finish a rough draft. Writers’ room brainstorming sessions will be conducted and scenes from produced shows will be screened and dissected in order to illustrate what works or doesn’t work on the small screen. Students should come prepared with ideas.
