Advanced Pilot Writing (7 weeks) – $350
Do you have an idea for a half-hour pilot? Make that idea the best it can be by taking Ed Lee’s Advanced Pilot Workshop. Over Seven Weeks, Ed will lead each member of the class towards the goal of completing an original pilot script, a crucial part of getting your foot into the door of the television writing business. Through lectures, class notes, and individual notes, by the end of this class, you will learn to bring your characters, ideas, and ultimately your pilot to life on the page. And you will come out with at least the first draft of your script.

NOTE: This is an advanced class that assumes you are familiar with the writing process. You must have taken either Ed Lee’s Sitcom Writers’ Room Class or either Michael McCarthy’s Sitcom Spec or TV Pilot Presentation class, or you must speak with Ed regarding your prior writing experience.

Wednesday 7pm-10:30pm (Begins 11/10) -Ed Lee (WR)
