TV Spec / Pilot Draft Intensive - * 2 SPOTS LEFT! *


Have an outline for a TV spec script or pilot that you want to take to draft? 

Or a draft that needs to be rewritten?

Maybe you've taken our Televisionary class and want deadlines and feedback as you head into draft?

The TV Spec/Pilot Draft Intensive is a structured 3 session class designed for writers who have a completed script outline and are ready to write their draft. 

You will get that unfinished project written and polished while reviewing core structure and other key elements.

It begins with a pre-class prep week in which writers hand in their outline and read a comedy or drama script chosen by the instructor. In Week One writers receive notes on their outlines from their peers and the instructor. In Weeks Two and Three, they receive notes on the first and second halves of their scripts. 

This is not a rewrite class, though there will be revising and retooling of story and key elements.

Classes cover: 

Structure / Act Outs / Set up / Character Development / Strengthening Dynamic Relationships

Amping up Conflict/ Stakes / Deepening Emotion and/or Comedy / Scene Techniques + In Class Exercises. 

Required: Televisionary or equivalent experience.

Instructor: Aaron Vaccaro


“I was impressed by Aaron’s knowledge of the television writing landscape and the tools that go into crafting a great spec script. He presented the necessary tools in a clear, concise, yet effective way that really resonated with my students!” — Jonathan Kesselman, Professor of Cinema & Television Studies at CSUN, Writer/Director of "The Hebrew Hammer."

“Aaron’s passion for bringing out the best in his students’ work is apparent from the first moment you meet him.  He masterfully guides you toward a stronger script, facilitates collaboration, and makes sure you have a blast while doing it.” — Haley Bartels, MFA Screenwriting Fellow at AFI
