TV is a writer’s medium and in this workshop we’ll walk through the logistics of how scripted television gets made from a writer’s perspective – from pilot development through series production. We’ll also discuss TV writers’ career ladder and, time-permitting, bounce some ideas around in a mini writers’ room session.
