Registration is now closed for this session.
Angela LaManna

The application period for the course has ended. Watch the Sundance Co//ab newsletter for updates on future course offerings.

Learn the core elements of writing a TV pilot with an accomplished TV writer as your guide. During this eight-week course you’ll create an outline for an original pilot script and learn a set of tools to help you ask the important questions of every scene and character that will get you past "stuck" when writing future episodes. Sessions include presentation and discussion, interactive exercises, and a case study with a renowned Advisor from the Sundance network. The course concludes with a one-on-one mentoring session focused on your project. 

The course will be held live in our virtual classroom. All sessions are recorded for registered participants who are unable to attend live.
