TV Spec & Pilot Draft Intensive
Apr 11 to May 9 — Tuesdays, 6:30pm – 9:30pm (PDT)
Instructor: Ben Blacker
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: “Ben totally lived up to my expectations. He was so fun and he gave excellent feedback. He didn’t hold back on giving us the feedback we needed. I will not make it in this business if I don’t hear what is expected of me, and Ben was straight with me from the start. He always pointed out when things in my story lacked or if he thought I could go farther. In fact, I liked working with him so much that I signed up for a follow-up consultation with him to get my draft even better. Ben is a great teacher; you can tell he cares and wants his students to improve.” — Nicole Schwegman
