Rob Parnell, "the world's foremost writing guru",
Dear Fellow Writer,
You'd have to agree that television is one of the miracles of our modern technological age.
TV unites and comforts us all. The small screen inspires, informs and entertains, transforming our lives since its invention last century in a myriad of incalculable ways.
Let's face it - you love it!
But have you ever asked yourself:
Could I Write For TV?
Fact is, someone has to - because the TV networks need a constant and never-ending supply of new shows...
Okay, so your next question will most likely be:
Can I Get In On Writing For TV?
And the answer is: of course you can, if you sign up NOW for my latest Easy Writing course:
The Easy Way to Write: Successful Drama and Comedy for TV Networks!
First off, let's see if you have what's needed to write for TV:
Do you have...
A fertile imagination
A need to communicate in writing to the masses
The ability to tell a compelling story (I can teach you that!)
Information on how to pitch to Networks & TV Producers (I got that covered for you too!)
Expert knowledge about the 'rules' of TV writing...
Now this is where I come in to my own.
In case you don't know me, I'm Rob Parnell, considered by many online sources (including Google and Wikipedia) and personalities to be the first and last authority on writing, self motivation and personal creativity.
My partner and I have created over 110 published books, courses, ebooks and information resources, many of which have been translated into foreign languages. We are often described by our friends, family and students as 'over-achievers'!
For the last decade, Robyn and I have been increasingly drawn to the visual media. As writers, we've worked with Hollywood producers, been intimately involved with some very exciting film and TV projects and, best of all, we've been paid a small fortune by production companies and media funding bodies to learn and hone our screenwriting abilities.
So much so that we've
recently formed our own production company,
I Can Teach You
The television industry has its own rules - rules that are not generally broadcast (no pun intended) to the general public. In order to compete as a TV writer, you need someone on the inside - like me - to help you.
I have so much information to share with you about writing for TV, I want to invite you on a journey into the world of television.
It's actually relatively easy to meet with producers and TV network executives - there's a good reason for this, which I'll teach you later (in the first module, immediately on sign-up!) But the hard part is presenting yourself and your material to the TV industry in exactly the right way.
Because, unless you follow the TV industry protocols - and major things like the way you format documents - you don't stand a chance.
Yes, even something as seemingly innocuous as the way a script and a TV program proposal looks is enormously important. More than that, your material has to look exactly right, or you won't get a serious look in.
But, don't worry, my friend, I can teach you everything you need to know about wrting for TV.
Over the next SIX WEEKS, you will learn:
Module One: Introduction to Writing for TV
A thorough analysis of the genre, how it works, how we got to where we are now and where we are heading in TVLand. Insights into successful writers, execs and producers in the TV world, past, present and future. How TV has changed in the last few years - and why the industry now welcomes new writers, ideas people and independent producers, directors and even web-based media individuals (like you!) Also, crucial clues as to how to quickly familiarize yourself with TV trends, including up to the minute insider tips on how to seem like a TV expert (without doing much work!)
Module Two: Your Ideas & How to Present Them
Curiously, one of the last questions you'll be asked in TV is whether you can actually write. You can go a long way with a good TV drama or comedy pitch without writing anything but a proposal. In this module I teach you the exact format you need to present your ideas. I'll also show you how to go about contacting people within the TV industry. It doesn't matter if you're shy or nervous - there are effective ways around these things. This module includes case studies and examples. I'll also teach you exactly how to brainstorm ideas like a professional so that you never have to want for inspiration again!
Module Three: What's Different About TV Writing?
As any writer knows, good stories come out of great characters in interesting scenarios. Once you've had a good idea, how do you develop that for TV? What are the rules that are specific to the audiovisual media? I'll teach you the subtle differences and we'll go over some of more familiar aspects of story telling that still apply to writing for the small screen - things like character development, story arc, long term serial considerations and other TV genre specific musts. Here we'll also investigate 'pushing the envelope' with regards to time-slot, moral correctness, network politics and social responsibility.
Module Four: Scripting, Editing and The Story Bible
A TV script is formatted differently from a movie script - and ne'er the twain shall meet! There are rules on timing and pacing (read: ad breaks) that you absolutely must understand and incorporate into your screenplays when writing for TV. I'll explain how professional script editors work too - and why you'll never get all of your words onscreen. Plus, we investigate the 'Story Bible'. How to write and create the basis of your TV series, so that you don't have to write every script - if you were ever allowed to do such a thing anyway! Module includes actual TV templates you can adapt for your own use.
Five: A Special Masterclass on Comedy Writing
Module Six: The Money & How You Get PAID
As the famous TV series tells us, despite all the creativity in the world, it's the Dirty Sexy Money we're ultimately after. In this module I explain how writers get paid for TV work - which is suprisingly often, even when your work doesn't appear on TV - and how much you can expect to make. I explain how TV gets funded, where the money comes from, who and why gets paid when, and how to negotiate deals where you get paid lots of money BEFORE everyone else and AFTER, again and again. This module also includes market listings and tips on how to start and maintain a lucrative TV writing career.
