Learn to pitch for TV
Examine the key elements to include in a television, or web series, pitch document to ensure that you dazzle your reader. A powerful pitch doc will help you gain traction, interest and funding for your project, hopefully before you write the pilot script. This course will dissect existing television pitch bibles, as well as arm you with skills to write your own. You’ll learn how to devise a two page pitch document, and a One Sheet.
Taught across two Saturdays, the first day you’ll learn the skills you need. You will then implement and apply these concepts, and bring your pitch document back to class on the second Saturday for feedback, collaboration and discussion.
Learn from an industry professional who’s created an original series in the UK, had her original concepts optioned several times, and pitched countless bibles throughout her extensive career.
Learn the essentials to include in a television bible for maximum impact including how to write a logline with impact and a synopsis that compels the reader.
Craft a compelling two page pitch for your original series – with a view to enter this document in competitions or to apply for funding; or to attract talent.
Consider where your project might fit in the current climate
Is the TV Pitch Document Essentials right for you?
Do you have an original series idea, but need help getting it into shape to pitch? Would you like to try to attract interest or funding for your project before committing to writing a pilot script? Are you a screenwriter with great ideas, but not enough Screen Industry business savvy? Then you’ll find this course very useful.
It will also be an appropriate course for producers who are happy to write a bible but not confident to write the script and need to convey their original idea to potential writers.
The course focusses on how to sell your idea on the page. You will learn how to analyse what is required to attract the reader, without overloading with unnecessary detail.
What you will need
- An idea for an original series that you are willing to share in a collaborative environment. This can be a “practice” idea that you work on in class, and apply the learnings from to other projects, if you wish.
- A knowledge of screenwriting skills and the current industry. You will not be learning screenwriting techniques in this course.
There will be work to do between the two Saturdays of the course creating/rewriting your bible. All course attendees will be asked to sign an NDA in relation to other students work.
