What's Included

Television writer and iO West instructor Ed Lee will discuss how television episodes - including pilots - are structured, and how you can apply it to your writing so your television scripts can have the best possible impact on your audience. Ed Lee has written for several TV shows including “Norm,” "The Drew Carey Show,” “Class of 3000,” and "Are You There, Chelsea?", and has worked in punch-up rooms for many sitcom pilots. He currently teaches television writing classes at iO West, UCLA Extension, and through writingmachineworkshops.com.
