*ONLINE* TV Spec Lab (Comedy and Drama)


Class-3-attentive---500px.jpg

You need at least one exceptional spec to break into this business. But you don’t need to live in LA. For the first time, Script Anatomy is offering its popular TV Spec Lab online with long time instructor Ali Laventhol.

The TV Spec Lab is where Script Anatomy writers finesse their specs for submission - to agents and managers, and to the TV Writing Fellowship Programs. 

This 4-week intensive class is run like a professional writers room, and requires **2 weeks prep before class begins**.

Using Script Anatomy’s tools, you will work at a pace expected in the TV industry. This means developing and writing your script within 4 weeks, with breaks in between for outline and draft.

It will require devoting time outside class to writing, homework and, at certain points, reading other classmates’ material to give feedback. Every writer is expected to participate: to read materials, pitch ideas, give notes, and work together. In a professional writers room, you must participate if you want to keep your job! Working this muscle will benefit you.

As our alumni attest, this unique curriculum provides invaluable preparation for your first job writing for TV.

We strongly recommend you register at least two weeks early to ensure completing your prep work on time.

Required: Televisionary or equivalent experience (at least 2 scripts). 

Instructor: Ali Laventhol

“Ali gets right to the heart of a story. Her approach is focused on identifying and building upon meaning and relationship progressions, with an appreciation for structure. With patience and warmth, she runs her class like a professional writer’s room. I have loved every single class I’ve taken at Script Anatomy.” — Pamela García Rooney, 2017 Disney | ABC Writing Program Semifinalist, 2016 PAGE Screenwriting Awards Quarterfinalist
