This web series workshop emphasizes developing a powerful concept, pilot script, and series structure.

There are countless commercial, artistic, and career benefits to making a web series. Web series can be a standalone success or act as a springboard to bigger projects, like it did for Broad CityInsecure, and High Maintenance. This workshop emphasizes developing a powerful concept, pilot script, and series structure—all of which are fundamental to creating a solid foundation for the rest of the process.
