Televisionary (Comedy & Drama)
Sep 12 to Oct 17 — Sundays, 9:00am-12:00pm (PDT)
Instructor: Elysse Applebaum
Televisionary is the foundation of the Script Anatomy Curriculum. An intensive 5-week course that is perfect for both new and working writers who want to elevate their scripts by applying Script Anatomy’s unique tools.
*Whatever your level—and whether you’re working on a comedy/drama TV spec or original pilot—this course will help you advance.*
Your instructor will guide you through the Script Anatomy tools, a tried and tested process of crafting your script from concept to outline. Each week, you will receive lectures about the tools, and then a corresponding assignment in which you will apply those tools to your own project. And you will receive weekly peer feedback and instructor critique, providing you with an honest evaluation of your material in a dynamic and supportive environment.
Like all Script Anatomy courses, it’s highly applicable and hands-on, and it prepares you for life as a professional writer. All of our successful alumni have taken this course, many of them several times. As Rowan Wheeler says in our introductory video, the techniques you learn in Televisionary will sustain you throughout your career.
On Zoom we offer two tiers—
Tier 1 is the full course with lessons + feedback
Tier 2 students only attend lectures but receive no feedback on their projects, nor do they see Tier 1 students’ feedback.
Classes cover: Hooks/Concepts / Arena / Loglines & Pitching / TV Story Structure / Strong Act Outs / Tone & Genre Expectation / Character Development / Dynamic Relationships / Conflict and Obstacles / Dilemmas & Goals / Stakes / Theme
Testimonial: “The Televisionary Workshop is the HGH of TV Writing. Having taken many classes, none have prepared me so thoroughly for a first draft. The Script Anatomy tools helped me delve deep into the theme and tracking of my spec script, allowing me to get a solid outline in a very short amount of time. For the first time in my writing career, the transition from outline to the first draft was seamless. I can’t say enough great things.” — Paul Ditty, 2019 Finalist for Warner Brothers Writers’ Workshop, Semi-Finalist for 2017 NBC WOTV, Semi-Finalist for 2017 FOX Writers Intensive, Second Rounder at 2017 Austin Film Fest.
