Television scripts & screenplays, Prose: non-fiction

Make a breakthrough: this book is an interactive and dynamic guide to making it in the world of TV scriptwriting, with a goal-orientated focus that will help you achieve recognition and break into any genre.

Writing Television Drama: Get Your Scripts Commissioned takes you from the very first line of the script through to becoming a regular writer for soaps and 'continuing dramas'. It starts with the basics of different types of script and production, and moves on to getting ideas, shaping character and dialogue, re-writing, pitching work and the practicalities of who does what in the production world, in both the UK and the US. Structured around a practical, progressive, goal-orientated approach, each chapter contains a diagnostic test, case studies, practical exercises and Aide Memoire boxes. Each chapter concludes with a reminder of the key points of the chapter (Focus Points) and a round-up of what to expect in the next (Next Step) will whet your appetite for what's coming and how it relates to what you've just read.
