Welcome To The Writer’s Room
This is the only class of its kind—run like a real writer’s room on a 30 minute TV comedy series, taught by a professional showrunner with over 25 years of industry experience—and featuring the work of 12 talented student writers.
You’ll not only complete a half hour pilot or spec script for a tv comedy series, you’ll also collaborate on the development of your fellow students scripts for a different show each week.
What You’ll Learn
You’ll learn the elements of a successful half-hour comedy series, and how to write a series pilot or series spec script that shows off your talent as a writer, but also your ability to demonstrate your professionalism to every network, studio, and series producer who reads it.
By the time you’re done, you’ll not only have real world experience of working in a TV writer’s room, you’ll also a community of writers you can depend on, and a draft of a professional grade spec script or pilot episode for your own TV series.

- Jerry makes it easy to understand what needs work while being supportive. He understands what I want to say and makes suggestions that make it easier for a larger audience to understand that too. Absolutely adore him! - Ri V.
- Three lines will be too little for the praise, respect, and admiration I have for Jerry Perzigian! He works with me to make my writing look professional, modern, and not just good, but great. He is patient, and reassuring, and funny! I’m actually going to be able to call myself a comedy writer, and Jerry is the reason. - Joi D.
- I walked into JKS 2 years ago. That was the first night of Jerry Perzigian’s Writer’s Room for Comedy. Suffice it to say, I had never attempted to write anything for TV, let alone “comedy”, let alone in a Writer’’s Room environment where I was certain I would feel like a total idiot around other seasoned writers who actually knew what they were doing! From the first moments of that introductory session, as we observed Jerry’s demeanor, on-point humor, and conceptual clarity, I knew, as did everyone else in the room, that we had found “the real deal.” Writing comedy has truly been a life changer for me on so many levels! I’m grateful to be learning from one of the best in the business. - Cynthia J.
- Jerry is the best kind of mentor! In true writers-room fashion, he taught me to work as a team - breaking stories, finding the smart-funny, and returning for re-writes until the script is exactly where I want it. Hands down - he's my fav! - Noelle W.
