Hello Writers!  I will teach WRITING THE PILOT again, starting June 2, 2024. 


This is the latest and greatest version of my FIVE WEEK class:  five 90-minute webinars, Sundays at 2pm PST.  If you can’t be there live, don't worry, there’s a link to watch later.   In Class One I encourage everyone to take THE PLEDGE: "I will finish a draft of my script!"  Over the following weeks, I lead you through my own 6-part writing process, which I developed over 30 seasons in writers rooms, sharing all my most valuable writing secrets, in the most entertaining way I can.  We analyze scenes together, I bring you on screen to discuss your work, and do everything I can to motivate your writing process!  

One of the best things about this class is that each new batch of students becomes it's own supportive WRITERS GROUP on facebook. These pop-up writers' communities have become an astonishing source of artistic support and feedback, the key elements of a writer's happiness and success! 

I know similar classes with far less credentialed teachers typically demand $800-$1500 dollars, but I refuse to charge more than $200, despite the hand-wringing of my agents.  I remember being an aspiring writer like you, and I know how much it means to get this knowledge and encouragement.  If you can’t afford $200 please just send me an email and we’ll work something out.


If you have an idea for a show that you’ve always wanted to write, or if you just love comedy and want to explore the craft with others who share your passion, JUMP IN!  I cannot count the number of emails I've gotten from writers who say “This class changed my life.”  And that's the real reason I am doing this: to help another artist like you VALIDATE the talent you have glimpsed in yourself. 


Let's go Writers!  It's time to chase the magic again! -- Brent

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long is each class?

Each class runs approximately an hour and a half.
Q: Are the classes recorded?
Yes, each class is recorded and available until two weeks after the last class.

Q: Do I need to participate live in the webinar?

No, but if you show up live you have the opportunity to ask me  questions, discuss your pilot ideas and be a part of the virtual writers' room. It's WAY more fun if you show up live! 

Q: Do I need to have an idea for a script before I register?
No! The class is designed to be help writers at any stage of the process. I assume many of you are going for a career in TV writing, and I always have a handful of working TV writers who drop in to learn my tricks. But I assume many of you are highly motivated newbies and you will not be left behind. Bring a first draft or an empty notebook: either way I will make sure you thrive here.
