Creating A Pitch Packet - Online Class

Saturdays at 12:00 pm

May 30, 2020

Have you written your television pilot or you have a great idea for a pilot and wondering, “What do I do now? How do I get this made?” Or maybe you’ve always wanted to write a TV pilot but don’t know where to start? This is the workshop for you.

This workshop focuses on what an original TV show pitch is, learning elements of a pitch packet (logline, characters, season arc, show bible, etc), and preparing the documents to properly support your amazing show idea. It can be for people that already have written a pilot script or it can be the first step in creating your pilot idea.

This course requires that students have a computer, access to the internet.

This class will be a one time online class from 12pm-2pm CST on Saturday May 30th.

If you have any questions please email

This class is intended for students age 17 and up.
