Do you have an idea you want to take out in 2019 but don’t know how?
In this five session course, writers will come in with an idea for a TV series and learn how to craft it into a concise, attention grabbing pitch. Whether your idea is meant for broadcast network, cable or digital streaming, you'll discover the easy tricks veteran writers and showrunners use to sell their series idea.
This workshop will cover: - How to open your pitch in a way that will blow the buyer's mind - Making your characters pop - Telling just enough story to get them asking for more - Where to sell your idea and the best way to get in the door
Participants will get one-on-one feedback from veteran producer Marla White, as well as learning by giving and getting constructive feedback to fellow writers.
The Takeaway: - Each participant will have a ready to go pitch, basic pilot outline, and a game plan of where to go from here.
Don't miss this once a year opportunity!
Richard Rosner “Marla's pitching class is terrific. The pitch techniques she teaches revealed to me that the pitch has a format that makes sense, it helped organize my thinking and deeply impacted my series development process, and it gave me the confidence to pitch my idea boldly with passion and conviction to agents or executives ”
Beverly Bridges -- Marla has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things television. She’s a great mentor, full of inspirational ideas and guidance. I highly recommend her workshop. I loved working with her!
