About the Weekend

Whether you’re writing a TV Drama, TV Comedy, Dramedy or Web Series pilot, a great TV Series Pilot must do more than just tell a great story.

It must suggest a blueprint for every episode that follows: a model for a unique structural engine that will generate the same genre experience, in a slightly different way, episode after episode and season after season.

In this TV Pilot Weekend with Award Winning Screenwriter Jacob Krueger, you’ll learn how to master the art of the pilot, develop the characters, the structure, and the engine of your series, and put it all into a package that will make producers salivate.

    Jacob is energetic and to the point. He’s helped me understand and develop my own technique. He doesn’t have an ego and doesn’t care if you write HIS way, all he cares about is that you write, and often. And if it’s not going well, write even more, as badly as you can, just to keep going because eventually, something good will come out of it. It’s a ton of fun learning from him, even if you’re stuck in LA and have to watch it online like me
