|Description||The Episodic Lab: Pilot to Series offers writers an opportunity to workshop an original pilot, and to develop their writing and pitching skills. Working with accomplished showrunners, the fellows will participate in one-on-one story meetings, craft workshops, and simulated writers’ rooms, which together provide creative and strategic tools for success. Part one of the lab will take place October 1–3, 2021, and October 9–11, 2021.
Fellows will reconvene in February for part two of the lab with a polished draft of their lab project. During this time, they will participate in pitch sessions, group conversations about the episodic landscape, and meet with producers and creative executives to discuss next steps and career goals. Part two will take place February 27–28, 2022.
