Inside The Comedy Writers Room Workshop

Kevin Townsley

Your dream has come true. After years of grinding you have finally got staffed! But then fear sets in: What’s it like in the writers’ room? How should I behave? Am I talking too much or not enough?

“Inside The Comedy Writers Room” pulls back the curtain on this elusive world. In this 3 hour TV Writer Workshop, all of your questions will be answered, and you will also experience what’s it’s like to “break” a story with other writers.

Every writer thinks they’re going to be staffed on “The Good Place” or “Search Party”. But the harsh truth is you’ll most likely end up staffed on a show you’d never watch, don’t like, or that will be cancelled after it’s first season. To be successful in TV you have to be passionate about every opportunity. Thus the reason you just got a job on…

SON OF ZORN (yep the canceled Fox show created by Reed Agnew & Eli Jones)

Your homework is to watch the pilot (and ONLY the pilot) and read the script. The workshop will be a “mock room” of your first day on the job where we will break a NEW episode two of the series as if the actual 2nd episode never aired.

The spirit of this three-hour workshop is to learn and have fun, but most importantly you’ll get insight into your future career and who you’ll be in the room. After the mock room session everyone will be given individual feedback and the instructor will go over the Do’s and Don’ts of being in a writers room.

You will receive the pilot script and streaming links TWO WEEKS BEFORE the start of the workshop. Please read and watch the pilot before class.
