CREATE YOUR OWN
TV DRAMA SERIES
A PRACTICAL COURSE ENABLING WRITERS TO DEVELOP ORIGINAL TV SERIES IDEAS INTO COMPLETED TREATMENTS
STUCK AT THE STARTERS’ BLOCK?
If you have a fabulous, original idea for a TV drama series but somehow haven’t quite managed to collect your thoughts and get it down on paper yet, you probably need a more structured approach.
HOW TO GET MOVING:
A few sensible deadlines, together with expert guidance and professional feedback at each step of the development process, will galvanize you into action and make procrastination a thing of the past.
This intensive course of 6 x five-hour workshops has been designed to enable you to develop your idea from initial concept right through to a detailed blueprint from which to write (and market) your drama series.
You’ll learn how to troubleshoot your project, hone your analytical skills, unleash your creativity, make sound editorial decisions and develop effective new working practices. You could go from being a writer with a nagging, creative idea that just won’t go away to being a writer with a completed treatment for that very idea - in just seven weeks.

The course takes place over six Sundays, with a break in the middle to allow for project development (and the London Screenwriters’ Festival weekend). If you unavoidably miss a particular session you can catch up the next time the course runs, by arrangement.
Places are limited so please apply early.
Some preparation work will be required prior to start date. All participants will be sent an Information Pack.
