Screenwriting with Katie Torpey returns with an 8-week TV screenwriting class for adults that will focus on how to create, develop, and write an original TV show. Students will learn how to develop their TV show idea, create a series bible as well as write the pilot episode of the series. During the course of the class, students will focus on how to develop a solid plot, structure the series so it has longevity, capture the theme of the show and create complex characters that audiences will love and be compelled to follow.
