15-Week Online Television Pilot Workshop

Learn How To Create a TV Series at NYFA

Creating a television series requires more than just a script; it requires creating a web of characters, a fully-realized world, a sustainable story engine and a specific voice for your series. In the 15-Week Online Television Pilot Workshop, students already familiar with television format and structure will learn how to write a television pilot.

To attend, students must have completed our 15-Week Online Television Spec Workshop or submit a formatted TV script with their application.

Workshop DescriptionWorkshop Name: 15-Week Online Television Pilot Workshop

Prerequisite: 15-Week Online Television Spec Workshop (or submission of a TV spec script they have written)

During our 15-Week Online Television Pilot Workshop, students come up with ideas for possible TV series. Working with their instructor and class, they will pick one to develop and create a series proposal that details the world, characters and themes of their series. They will then break down the story of the pilot before writing a TV script for that pilot.

After completing this workshop, many students apply for our 15-Week Online Screenplay Rewrite Workshop, where they learn how to revise and polish the first draft of their pilot script.
