ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Carole Kirschner has worked as a senior level television executive for eighteen years. Her posts as a comedy development executive at CBS and as the first Vice President of Television at Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment have given her an insider’s angle on how to get in, get hired, move up and sell projects. She helped develop award-winning shows like Murphy Brown, Designing Women and Steven Spielberg Presents Tiny Toon Adventures. During her tenure as an executive she hired and worked with hundreds of entertainment professionals.
After leaving the executive world to spend more time with her husband and new daughter, she became a consultant. As a consultant, she created the CBS Diversity Institute Writers Mentoring Program to help launch the careers of beginning television writers of color. She has run that program from the beginning. As a result of her work with the Writers Mentoring Program she had the pleasure of helping Jeffrey Melvoin, writer/producer and creator of the Writers Guild Showrunner Training Program to develop the curriculum for the SRTP. She’s had the honor of being the Director since its inception. Wearing yet another program hat, she is also the Director of the Humanitas New Voices Program, a prestigious program for emerging writers.
An international speaker, Carole leads seminars and workshops on pitching, writing a killer television pilot, breaking into Hollywood, marketing yourself to the entertainment industry and understanding the U.S. television business for international audiences.
Through her career coaching practice, Park on the Lot, she consults with both Hollywood beginners who need a roadmap to “breaking in” as well as seasoned writers, executives and other professionals who are passionately committed to taking their careers to the next level.
