*ONLINE* Televisionary (Comedy & Drama)


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 an original pilot—this course will help you advance*

Instructor Zach Ayers has worked on the following shows: American Soul (BET), Siren (Freeform), State of Affairs (NBC), A.N.T Farm (Disney).

He 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 can apply them to your own project, whether it’s a TV spec or an original pilot.

For online students, we operate Two Tiers:

Tier 1 students receive peer feedback and instructor critique each week, providing them with a constructive evaluation of their material in a dynamic and supportive environment.

Tier 2 students just receive the lectures, but no feedback. 

All students will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A at the end of each class. And if for any reason you can’t make the online class live, you can watch the video recording at your convenience.  

“Televisionary is the human growth hormone of TV Writing. Having taken many classes, none have prepared me so thoroughly for a first draft. For the first time in my career, the transition from outline to first draft was seamless. I can’t say enough great things.” — Paul Ditty, 2019 Finalist for Warner Brothers Writing Program, 2017 Semi-Finalist for NBC Writers On The Verge and 2017 FOX Writers Intensive

Instructor: Zach Ayers


"Zach's class on outlining so impressed me that I went on to his Draft Intensive. Both classes were integral to the final pilot that has producers reading. Zach has a format created by Script Anatomy that far exceeds any prior class I've taken. He adds examples of real scenarios from our homework, wit, and personal anecdotes to make the classes fun and informative. He hit it out of the park. The packed sessions had so much content my typing speed went up.  He worked on our projects in his lectures and you could tell all of our work was important to him.  I'm up for any writing classes he teaches." - Betty Sullivan
