Our first TV Writing Bootcamp session was led by Priscila García-Jacquier! We began learning all about TV Writing—the three-act structure, what it’s like to work in the industry, and what it takes to make it!
During the second session, Priscila guided us through prompts that helped the group begin to craft a collective, 15-page pilot based on what we learned during the first session. Mentees were assigned a scene to work on based on the plot crafted during this second workshop.
The third session consisted of a read-through and revision of the collectively created script. Towards the end, surprise guest Kathie Newman talked about her role and journey as a Literary Manager at 3 ARTS Entertainment.
