This is my most popular class, where I lead you through the process of writing a TV pilot over 6 Sundays at 2 PM PST.  I teach this course only ONCE A YEAR!  


In my early career I was highly analytical about learning to write TV, and after 20 seasons (on 6 Emmy winning shows) I have collected a huge number of concrete insights into the craft.  I am also famous for being the GREAT MOTIVATOR of Writers in the Room.  Every time I teach a class it becomes a community of motivated writers connecting online and IRL for years! 


Each class is a combo of lecture, clip analysis and on-screen participation. Every Sunday has a specific focus reflecting the SIX STEPS that I put staff through when I run a writers room:


Week 1 = CONCEPT: The Characters and the World

Week 2 = STORY: Conflict, Emotional Arc, A and B story

Week 3 = STRUCTURE: Carding, Act Breaks, Escalation, Endings

Week 4 = OUTLINE: Scene Structure, Joke Pitching, Room Notes

Week 5 = DRAFT: The Vomit Pass! Generating and Editing Dialog

Week 6 = REWRITE: Read-throughs, Punch-up, Joke Science


I priced this class so low because I still relate to being a struggling artist and I want to give you access to all the  protected knowledge of the craft that I could never get when I was trying to break in!   This will be life-changing for you as usual :)  Let's go Writers! —  Brent
