TV Spec & Pilot Draft Intensive
Sep 18 to Oct 16 — Sundays, 11am – 2pm (PDT)
Instructor: Spiro Skentzos
Have an outline for a TV spec script or pilot that you want to take to draft? Or a draft that needs to be rewritten? Maybe you’ve taken our Televisionary class and want deadlines and feedback as you head into the draft?
The TV Spec/Pilot Draft Intensive is a structured 3 session class designed for writers who have a completed script outline and are ready to write their draft. You will get that unfinished project written and polished while reviewing core structure and other key elements.
It begins with a pre-class prep week in which you hand in your outline and read a comedy or drama script chosen by the instructor. In Week One you receive notes on your outlines from your peers and the instructor. In Weeks Two and Three, you receive notes on the first and second halves of your scripts, while reviewing core elements like structure, dynamic relationships and so on.
If you have a draft that needs to be rewritten, or you just want deadlines and feedback as you head into draft, this course will help. You’ll get that unfinished project written and polished while reviewing core structure and other key elements.

Testimonial: “After waking up to work on my homework from Spiro’s class, I found myself going back to the concepts, structure, anecdotes from our sessions. It was extremely fulfilling and empowering to apply the “craft” to what otherwise felt like hard to corral energy. Thanks, Spiro. It’s so clear you know what you’re talking about, and you care, and I’m really grateful for this experience and opportunity to learn from you. You teach really well.” — Gianfranco Cuoco
