Each student develops an original series concept and an accompanying pilot script. The class includes the basics of how to build a series for network, cable and streaming. There is a focus on the pilot as both a successful episode and a blueprint for an ongoing series that has a strong enough premise to sustain dynamic stories for multiple seasons. 

 

In a step-by-step process, students move from series concept to pilot stories, to outline and lastly to script. Both half-hour and one-hour series are covered.

 

Columbia students do not need to apply, but they do need to register. All visiting students will need to apply to the School of Professional Studies and register upon acceptance.
