15-Week Online Television Spec Workshop

15-Week Online Television Spec Workshop Overview

Overview

In the television industry, a spec script is a script of an existing series, written to demonstrate the writer’s ability to master the style, format and voice of a show they did not create. In this 15-week online class, students learn how to write a spec script by studying half-hour and hour-long television series currently on the air, while learning the basics of television structure and format. They learn how to develop ideas for an existing TV series, and how to examine and analyze the structure and story engine for shows already on the air. Once they pick a series, students develop an episode idea, break it down to fit the structure of the series, and then write a spec episode.
