TV Structure Lab (Drama)
Jul 28 to Sep 15 — Wednesday, 6:30pm-9:30pm (PDT)
Instructor: Jim Galasso
To “break story” means coming up with all the scenes—or beats—for your episode, and then pitching those beats on the board, while the rest of the room weighs in with fixes and solutions for story problems.
TV Structure Lab mimics that process, but for your pilot. You’ll learn to troubleshoot a story that isn’t working, and you’ll get feedback on how you pitch ideas and conduct yourself in a room. You’ll also have six other writers help with story structure.
Jim Galasso was Head of Development at World of Wonder Productions. He was also a writer on LOST (ABC), HAWAII FIVE-O (CBS), and BEYOND (Freeform).
This lab is an invaluable preparation for life as a TV writer. You would never build a house without proper blue prints. Pilot writing is no different. In Sasha Feiler’s testimonial video, the Adult Swim writer calls it “the best TV writing class I’ve ever taken.”
Required: At least one Script Anatomy class or equivalent experience with permission.
Testimonial: “Script Anatomy pushes you to dig deeper and ask those tough questions upfront. In a very simple, straightforward way, it helps you demystify the overwhelmingly isolating process. Script Anatomy reminded me how much goes into creating a story. It is an outstanding school for non-working and working writers. I will definitely be going back.” — Wendy Straker Hauser, Story Editor, Hulu’s “THE HANDMAID’S TALE”
