What you'll learn in this tv writing class:

You’ll learn the elements of a successful half-hour comedy series, and how to write a series pilot or series spec script that shows off your talent as a writer, but also your ability to demonstrate your professionalism to every network, studio, and series producer who reads it. By the time you’re done, you’ll not only have real world experience of working in a TV writer’s room, you’ll also a community of writers you can depend on, and a draft of a professional grade spec script or pilot episode for your own TV series.

This is the only class of its kind—run like a real writer’s room on a 30 minute TV comedy series, taught by a professional show runner with over 25 years of industry experience—and featuring the work of 12 talented student writers. You’ll not only complete a half hour pilot or spec script for a TV comedy series, you’ll also collaborate on the development of your fellow students scripts for a different show each week.

In addition to your work in class, you’ll get a one-on-one consultation with your showrunner and teacher, Jerome Perzigian, to discuss the unique challenges of your script and the goals for your career. With more than 25 years of Hollywood experience, Jerome has been a showrunner, writer, and producer on some of the most successful half-hour series in history, including “The Jeffersons,” “The Golden Girls,” “Frasier,” “The Nanny,” and “Married…with Children.”Now, he brings a lifetime of experience directly to you as your teacher, showrunner, mentor and coach.

Question from Donna K.
I'd love to take this class. I would have to miss a session in June for a pre planned vacation. Am I allowed to do a makeup class on another evening? Thanks Donna
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The school actually record all of these classes and keep them up for a full month after the class ends. So students can actually re-watch the class you'd normally have to miss. There's also an option for the students to join that session live online from anywhere in the world. They have the whole classroom wired for sound, so students will be able to see and hear everything and be seen and heard as if they are in the room.
