Televisionary is the foundation of the Script Anatomy Curriculum.
An intensive 5 week course that is perfect for both new and working writers who want to elevate their scripts by applying Script Anatomy’s unique tools.
*Whatever your level—and whether you’re working on a TV spec or original pilot—this course will help you advance.*
Instructor Aaron Vaccaro has written for Mike and Molly and Superior Donuts (both CBS), and currently writes for a NETFLIX series. He’s a former NBC Writer on the Verge.
Aaron will guide you through the Script Anatomy tools, a tried and tested process of crafting your script from concept to outline. Each week, you will receive lectures about the tools, and then a corresponding assignment in which you will apply those tools to your own project. And you will receive weekly peer feedback and instructor critique, providing you with an honest evaluation of your material in a dynamic and supportive environment.
Like all Script Anatomy courses, it’s highly applicable and hands-on, and it prepares you for life as a professional writer. All of our successful alumni have taken this course, many of them several times.
"The Televisionary Workshop is the HGH of TV Writing. Having taken many classes, none have prepared me so thoroughly for a first draft. The Script Anatomy tools helped me delve deep into the theme and tracking of my spec script, allowing me to get a solid outline in a very short amount of time. The notes from my instructor were thorough and balanced, challenging me to be my best while remaining respectful of my ideas. For the first time in my writing career, the transition from outline to first draft was seamless. I can't say enough great things."
