Student-laughing-3-1000px.jpg

Develop your TV comedy pilot here in a professional environment using Script Anatomy’s tools. Instructor Kevin Townsley has worked on over a dozen television shows and currently writes on Pop TV’s Let’s Get Physical.

You need at least one exceptional original pilot to break into the business.

The TV Comedy Pilot Lab is a 6 week intensive course which is run like a professional writers room. It requires 2 weeks of prep before class begins.

Using Script Anatomy tools, you will develop, outline and write your TV comedy pilot script at a pace expected in the TV industry. 

All class members are required to devote time to homework, writing and reading other classmates’ work to provide feedback. They are expected to actively participate in the development and story breaking process each week. In a professional writers room, you must participate if you want to keep your job! Working this muscle will benefit you.

This is an advanced class that prepares you for your first job writing for TV. As our alumni attest, the experience is invaluable.

Required: Televisionary or equivalent experience.

Instructor: Kevin Townsley
