TV Spec Lab (Comedy)


Student-laughing-1-500px.jpg

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

Instructor Gil Hizon is a CBS Mentorship Program Alum who has written for Insatiable (NETFLIX).

You need at least 1 exceptional spec to break into this business.

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

Every writer is expected to participate: to read materials, pitch ideas, give notes and work together to help your fellow screenwriters. In a professional writers’ room, you must participate if you want to keep your job! Working this muscle will benefit you.

Using Script Anatomy’s tools, you will work at a pace expected in the TV industry. It will require devoting time outside class to writing, homework and, at certain points, reading other classmates’ material to give feedback. We strongly recommend you register at least two weeks early to ensure completing your prep work on time.

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

Required: Televisionary or equivalent experience. 

Instructor: Gil Hizon

"I’ve had the pleasure of receiving Gil’s insightful notes. He quickly gets to the heart of the matter and helps writers think about their scripts from a completely different angle. Gil is meticulous and an endless source of encouragement.
