TV Comedy Pilot Lab


Develop your TV comedy pilot here in a professional environment using Script Anatomy’s tools. Instructor Kevin Townsley has worked on Let's Get Physical (POP TV) and recently sold a TV comedy pilot to Pivot Entertainment with Silver Pictures producing.

You need at least one exceptional original pilot to break into the business.

The TV Comedy Pilot Lab is a 6-week intensive course that is run like a professional writers’ room. It requires 2 weeks of prep before class begins.

Using Script Anatomy tools, you will develop, outline and write your TV comedy pilot script at a pace expected in the TV industry. 

All class members are required to devote time to homework, writing and reading other classmates’ work to provide feedback. They are expected to actively participate in the development and story breaking process each week. In a professional writers’ room, you must participate if you want to keep your job! Working this muscle will benefit you.

This is an advanced class that prepares you for your first job writing for TV. As our alumni attest, the experience is invaluable.

Required: Televisionary or equivalent experience.

Instructor: Kevin Townsley


Kevin Townsley is an exceptional instructor who becomes your script’s best and most supportive best friend. Like a BFF, he tells you what’s not working and rolls up his sleeves to help you come up with a fix."
