Writing for Television 2012

Have you been slaving away, trying to break the story for that perfect sitcom spec? Do you have a completed procedural pilot that you just don’t know what to do with? Or do you have a few credits to your name, and you’re wondering where your career is going next?

At WRITING FOR TELEVISION 2012, you’ll hear from writers, agents and executives with years of experience and expertise. They’ll discuss every aspect of the craft, from writing to pitching to breaking in and staying in. We’ll also have a selection of writers from the MODERN FAMILY staff, who’ll be on hand to talk about the fast-paced dynamic of a comedy writers’ room.
