TV Consultations

No one pulls punches when they’ve paid you six figures and you’ve got a script to deliver – and neither will Tawnya. She’s as savvy as any exec or producer on the lot, but also knows what it is to be a writer. A damn good one at that. She can empathize with the sheer difficulty of the process, but will not accept that as an excuse for mediocrity. Excellence is the expectation, and you will be given the tools to achieve it.

– A. Ladd

Wherever you are in your writing process, be it concept, outline, or a fully finished draft, our goal is to provide a consult option that gives you the strongest possible script. While all of our instructors have proven their worth in the TV industry, they are at various points in their careers. For this reason you will see there are two available price points: Senior Consultants (Tawnya Bhattacharya, Ali Laventhol, Alyson Feltes, Hollie Overton, Zach Ayers) are our upper and mid level writers with 4 staffing credits or more. Junior Consultants (Eileen Jones, Michael Perri, Margaux Froley, Kevin Townsley, Gil Hizon, Nora Nolan) are lower-level writers with up to 4 TV show credits.

Feature consultations are also available with those of our consultants who have relevant credits and experience.

Contact Tawnya here to discuss tailoring a TV or feature package that will meet your individual needs.

100: TV OUTLINE ANALYSIS

Your consultant will read and analyze your TV Outline and give you verbal/written notes, as well as suggestions and tools to revise and elevate your concept, strengthen your story structure and theme, build compelling characters and relationships, clarify story and actions, raise your stakes, and go deeper emotionally. Whipping your outline into excellent shape is a crucial step to the development of your story and a strong first draft. Your consultant reads your outline two times – first for their initial reaction, then again to delve into problem areas and how to fix them.
