How to Jump Start Your TV Writing Career
“So… writing for television… how does that even work? Like, what are the steps? What kinda things should I be working on? Where should I send them once they’re done? And why’s all of it such a mystery?”
On Saturday, November 16th from 3-6pm in The Del Close Theater at The iO Chicago, the above questions and more will be answered by working TV writer Michael McCarthy (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0565258/), who’s credits include: “Saturday Night Live,” “Sesame Street,” Comedy Central, Drew Carey, “Mike and Molly,” and more… he’s worked for talk shows, sketch shows, sitcoms and created a dozen TV pilots and has many hobbies including referring to himself in the third person!
This will be a rare, 3-hour workshop that will address the nuts and bolts of exactly how the system works presented by somebody who’s been doing it professionally since he was 24-years-old, and was hired as a staff writer on SNL. Practical, hands-on information re the kind of material most lit agents prefer to read prior to signing new clients. Even if you are vaguely interested in writing for television, you’re not going to want to miss HOW TO JUMP START YOUR TV WRITING CAREER. $40 includes handout, etc…
