800 thought on “Writing the Pilot

  1. I m a novelist, not a screenwriter I ve always been mad when books on how to write a novel reference movies or television shows.Novels are NOT movies or TV shows, especially novels that are part of a series Novels generally have complex stories than movies Often, a lot of what your character or characters are thinking and feeling about events that are happening make up significant portions of a novel You don t have all the visuals, the pulse pounding music, of movies to tell your story.But books [...]


  2. My plan is to write screenplays as my exit ticket from teaching.So I wrote one Actually, I ve written 2 pilots One for a 1 2 hour comedy this book won t help you and and other for a hour long Sci Fi Drama This book was recommended to me after I paid someone the money I earned from working 4 detentions after school to read that hour long Sci Fi Drama.I should have read this book BEFORE I paid that woman all that cash, because I would have not sent her that garbage I wrote in the first place And, [...]


  3. This author offers wisdom and insight and encouragement This is not a follow this template type of book as other reviewers have noted But his advice, such as starting with the fun, feels extremely helpful and practical even so The feeling as one reads is that his insights are based on long years of experience and one senses that what is being said in this book isn t necessarily being covered in other TV writing books.To me, the last chapter feels tacked on As if the author got really down or dru [...]


  4. I m 43% into this book and the main problem that I ve encountered so far is that I do not see any examples analysis of comedy TV shows There are Buffy, The Closer, Law and Order, Flash Forward, Mad Men and they are all very truly wonderful but I can t recall a single mentioning of a comedy show Of course, the ideas of a theme and central conflict are universal However, I wish I could see , actually rather any, examples of how they are applicable to comedy Bummer.


  5. I thought that Writing the Pilot and the Ella Clah script which was extensively mentioned and is available as a separate book thoroughly described all that is necessary for one to tackle the design of and the writing of a pilot, from which to extrapolate a TV series References, such as the Rockford Files, Columbo and Buffy the Vampire Slayer although fairly historical, in comparison to the contemporary Deadwood and Breaking Bad are very relevant.


  6. The writing is great lean and swift and punchy The ideas are well they re a theory about how to write a show A good theory Not the only theory or even necessarily the truth, but one man s truth artfully expressed And consequently thought provoking.
