SCWR 455: Advanced Writers' Room (Formerly DC 443)

Due to COVID-19, Spring in-class sections will be conducted online. Please contact your instructor for more information.

This advanced course provides students the opportunity to develop a television series in a workshop setting modeled after a professional writers? room. From Writer's Assistant to Showrunner, we will examine the various roles that make the writers? room a creative and dynamic environment. Students will pitch ideas, break story, and ultimately uncover strategies to running the room for a full season.

SCWR 452 is a prerequisite for this class.

This course is repeatable for 999.99 credit hours.
