Weeks 1–10: Story Room

For the first 10 weeks of the program, participants will work as a team to develop an original series concept brought to the team by an established showrunner. In a collaborative story-room environment led by the showrunner and following a story room’s rigorous schedule, the writing team will build out the concept, ultimately arriving at a fully developed series package that is ready to present to broadcasters.

Weeks 11–15: Original Series & Business of Writing

For the final five weeks of the program, working one-on-one with an experienced mentor, participants will further develop their own original scripted television pilot. During this time, participants will also continue to learn more about the business side—preparing their project pitches and meeting with industry professionals.
