Writing Your Own TV Series

Discuss the joy, frustration, anxiety, etc. of trying to write stories, plays, memoirs, or screenplays to eventually become a pitchable TV show. Or vamp a hypothetical TV series concept and discuss all of the reasons not to commit to writing it. Develop a cast, a location, time period, class, gender roles, ancillary characters or diversified cast, genre, subtext, political/not political etc. Fully commit as if this were something you were going to do, and then do it.

  • This is an interesting yet tough assignment. I think it'd need a certain type of writer. It'd be cool to know if any of our writer's out there are actually making their own pitch though! – Tatijana 7 years ago
  • I have just finished himym and I wouldnt feel like writing anything different, because I really liked it. But writing your own TV series, great idea and good luck with patience to anyone who will give it a try. – nikoletaslezakova 7 years ago
  • I've been working on writing a graphical novel in hopes of turning it into a TV series one day. I must say the idea of pursuing a career in writing/screen writing is rather intimidating for me. I always question whether other people will like my ideas as much as I do. I would love to hear about someone's experience with writing a TV series, even if it's just simple, non-concrete ideas. – Filippo 7 years ago
