Intro to Writing for Television


In this workshop, students will receive an introduction to the everyday work of the television writer.  They will be taught the basic structure of TV drama, and participate in a simulated Writers Room, where students will generate an idea for an episode of television and "break story."  Please note that students should come ready to collaborate and vocally participate.
Workshop is Saturday, March 30, 1:30pm-4:30pm in the Keck Theater Rehearsal Room

Dan Dietz is the inaugural Guest Artist in Residence for the Edgerton Program in Theater through which Oxy students benefit from residency activities with artists in residence at our partner theaters, A Noise Within and The Theatre @ Boston Court.  Dietz's new play, American Misfit, is receiving its world premiere production, directed by Michael Michetti at The Theatre @ Boston Court (April 4 - May 12, 2013).

In addition to his work as a playwright, Dan is currently a writer for the CBS drama, Person of Interest. We are pleased that, through the Edgerton Guest Artist Program, Oxy students can benefit from both aspects of Dan's career: in the workshop described here and in a post-show discussion on April 12, following the final preview of American Misfit.
