THE SHOWRUNNER MASTER CLASS

THE JOURNEY OF 3 YEARS – IN 3 DAYS.

 

OVERVIEW

Three years is on average the time it takes for a great idea to become a series. From the moment you woke up in bed and wrote down your first notes, to the moment your name rolled in the credits at the end of the first episode.

Our SHOWRUNNER MASTER CLASS will try to go along that journey, in a shorter time: three days to be precise. We will hear from renowned creators, writers and producers how to tackle each phase.
