TV Spec Lab (Drama/Dramedy)


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 Dedi Felman was an HBO Access Writing Fellow, the Executive Editor at Oxford University Press, and co-founded Words Without Borders.

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: Dedi Felman

"Dedi is an amazing instructor who really digs deep to hone your vision. She latches on to the heart of your story, nourishes that vision, and gives you the tools and notes to see that vision realized. She's patient yet firm and works tirelessly to ensure you are supported throughout the length of the class.” - Natasha M. Hall, repped by Industry Entertainment, 2016 Diverse Voices Winner
