EPISODE #002–Where Do TV WRITERS Get Ideas?


RUN TIME about 22 minutes

The show is divided into four parts.

PART ONE: The Story

Today I make you take the Writer’s Pledge. When you do, you’ll be part of our super secret society!

PART TWO: The Topic of the Week.

  • Loglines. What are they? How do they work.

PART THREE: Your Homework

Here’s your homework:

  • Write some LOGLINES for a SERIES PREMISE that is sparked by these two photos. Use one, or write for both, or combine the two!  Have fun!

I’ve got it all spelled out for obvious reasons: I hate spam as much as you do!

I plan on releasing these episodes monthly, so I can do them right. Won’t you subscribe? And tell your friends.

Here’s a book I highly suggest you have. (And yes, I get rewarded through Amazon’s Affiliate program. That helps pay the costs of bringing this to you.)
