More and more writers are turning to television, with good reason. The best stories right now are on TV, the most jobs are in the television industry, and writers have the most control over the content. It's also incredibly competitive, fast-paced, and difficult to break into.

In order to gain notice as a TV writer, you need a couple of original pilot scripts and the knowledge of what it takes to create a long-running TV series. In this workshop we'll discuss:

• What ideas make good TV shows

• Who the target audience is

• Series loglines

• Developing TV Characters

• Pilot Arc

• Series Arc

• The Story Engine

• Writing the TV Pilot

Bring your TV ideas or come to be inspired to create some. This will be my last workshop until mid-January.

    Sorry for the last minute change - I feel exhausted and unwell. I've been set all week, in the cold and it has caught up with me. Next time, for sure.

    Rene, sorry to bail at the last minute, but I'm sick today. Was really looking forward to this as well.

    This is very timely for me. I have been adapting a feature script for a television series. I have notes from a couple of story editors with tv experience pushing me to do it. I have a draft of the pilot in my head. I need to basically sit down over the winter and get to work on it. I trust Rene's workshop is a good place to start.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
