TV Comedy Writing - Level 1
Upcoming class dates will be announced soon
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 a community of talented student writers.
Working with your classmates, and under the showrunning mentorship of Jerry Perzigian, you’ll develop a premise, structure, and episode for a new TV Comedy Series.
What You’ll Learn
You’ll learn the elements of a successful half-hour comedy series, and how to write a series pilot 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.
A Teacher You Can Trust
With more than 25 years of Hollywood experience, Jerome has been a showrunner, writer, and producer on some of the most successful half-hour series in history, including “The Jeffersons,” “The Golden Girls,” “Frasier,” “The Nanny,” and “Married…with Children.”
Now, he brings a lifetime of experience directly to you as your teacher, showrunner, mentor and coach.

- From the first moments of class, as I 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.--Cynthia J.
- I first began as an artist with no writing experience. I hadn't watched TV for 15 years so I had no idea what I was doing but I knew I had a story to tell. Jerry was AMAZING! In addition to attending Jerry's Workshops, he coached me for 2 years. Thanks to him, I completed 3 episodes of my TV Pilot entitled "Flourish" and won "Best TV Script Award" at the LA Film Awards.-Cynthia S.--Cynthia S.
