If you missed it a few months ago…
I’m teaching another “Writing the TV Pilot” seminar in Los Angeles this month, and I hope you can all make it!
Spec pilots are selling like hot cakes these days… Matthew Weiner‘s Mad Men on AMC was a spec pilot… and so was Sons of Tucson, FOX‘s new midseason comedy. Yours could be next!
This is a great class for anyone working on a spec pilot or thinking of writing a spec pilot… or even if you want to be a producer, agent, or executive developing pilots at networks, studios, or production companies.
We’ll also have a special guest… Stacy Traub, creator of ABC‘s Notes from the Underbelly, who’s also written and produced for Spin City, Happy Family, Kitchen Confidential, Suddenly Susan, and HBO‘s upcoming Washingtonienne. (Last time we had Lesley Wake-Webster, who has written and produced for Kitchen Confidential, What I Like About You, Ruby & the Rockets, and That ’80’s Show.)
Here’s the scoop… hope to see you there!
