More than just a writing class, our TV Drama workshop gives you the experience of a real writer’s room on a 1 hour TV Drama series, with a teacher with over 15 years of television experience acting as showrunner, and a class of 12 talented student staff writers. You’ll not only complete an hour-long pilot or spec script for a TV Drama series of your choice, you’ll also collaborate on the development of your fellow students scripts for a different show each week.
In addition to your work in class, you’ll get a one-on-one consultation with your showrunner and teacher, Stephen Molton, to discuss the unique challenges of your script and the goals for your career. With more than 15 years of industry experience, Stephen Molton has written more than a dozen produced television episodes and feature films for various studios and independent production companies. Now, he brings a lifetime of experience directly to you as your teacher, showrunner, mentor and coach.
