Is your life a TV series? Studios and Networks are always looking for the next “Sopranos”“Lost” or “Mad Men.” They are hungry for original TV shows. The Ridgefield Playhouse is offering an 8-week “TV Writing” Class for adults that will
focus on how to create, develop and write an original TV show.

Students will spend 8 weeks learning how to flush out their TV show idea, create a series bible as well as write the pilot (1st) episode of the series. During the course of the class, students will focus on how to develop a solid plot, structure the series so it has longevity, capture the theme of the show and create complex characters that audience’s will love and be compelled to follow. The objective of this course is to help students create, develop and write original TV shows that they could potentially sell to Hollywood.
