Pilot Structure Lab (Drama & Comedy)

Jul 24 to Sep 18 — Wednesdays, 6:30pm – 9:30pm (PT)

Instructor: Jackie Penn

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 writers 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. You would never build a house without proper blueprints. Pilot writing is no different.

This advanced class will take you from seed of an idea to the first draft of an outline. There are also two weeks of prep work where you will complete the script anatomy signature tools before the class begins.

This lab is an invaluable preparation for life as a TV writer.

Required: At least one Script Anatomy class or equivalent experience with permission.

Sign up Early! Two weeks of prep work where you will complete the script anatomy signature tools.

Testimonial: “I found Jackie’s feedback to be encouraging, simple, and to the point. The questions she asked helped me develop my characters and their goals more clearly which is something that I struggle with as a new writer. She presented the material in a way that was easy to understand and patiently answered all my questions. I feel like I came away with a solid understanding of character building and pilot story structure which is already making me a better writer.Diana Penaloza
