(TV Writing Faculty, NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts)
This is a 3-day introductory crash course in comedic writing for television. You will tackle the first act of a speculative sitcom script, choosing to write for one of the following shows: "Modern Family", “South Park”, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, “The Office”, “Parks and Recreation”, or “Community”. This workshop will approach the form from the ground up, from writing premise lines and outlines to working actual pages of your script, as well as the best methods to give, receive, and apply criticism. You will learn to recognize what works in this medium—those TV moments that make you laugh out loud and the ones you’ll never forget—and how to translate this knowledge into a successful script.

A musical is only as good as its libretto, the piece that marries the plot and character development with musical composition. This 10-week class tackles the techniques of plot structure, story development, and adaptation, as well as how to write for various musical genres such as pop, rock, and musical theater.
