About the event
Want to sell a TV show? You’re going to need more than just a great pilot. A TV Bible is the most important document in your arsenal when it comes to selling your series. More than just a treatment or synopsis, a successful TV Bible not only hooks your reader with a compelling concept and unforgettable characters, but also demonstrates the underlying Series Engine that will allow your series to run season after season. In this seminar, WGA Award Winner Jacob Krueger will teach you not just how to write a TV Bible, but also how to think about one. You’ll learn what to include, and what to exclude, how to avoid the common pitfalls, and how to write a Bible that grabs a producer by their designer lapels, and tells them you need to make this!
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
● How To Write a TV Bible For Your Original Series
● The 7 Elements of Every Successful TV Bible
● The 5 Things That Are Probably Wrong With Your Pilot (And How To Fix Them!)
● The Important Differences Between Treatments, Bibles and Pitch Decks..
● The Vital Link Between the TV Bible and The Structure of Your Pilot
