In his new book, "Story Maps: TV Drama," former studio Story Analyst and author Daniel Calvisi brings you the results of his deep analysis of the story structure behind the best and most ground-breaking television series of the past decade. Countless screenwriting books have offered what is claimed to be the definitive structural paradigm, what you might know as the "classical structure beat sheet," for feature films, but none have tackled the daunting task of defining a beat sheet for EPISODIC TELEVISION. Until now, that is. And on this call, Calvisi will review the major principles and techniques in his book.

 

Today, the ONLY requirement for a new writer to break into the television industry is a great pilot script. To create a fresh pilot, one must first look at how the pros do it, by dissecting great shows like MR. ROBOT, GAME OF THRONES, THE WALKING DEAD, SCANDAL, TRUE DETECTIVE, HOUSE OF CARDS and BREAKING BAD. On this call, Dan Calvisi will reveal the shared dramatic devices and structural secrets of these incredible series, and give you the path you need to create your own series.

Facing the blank page is tough for any writer, amateur or professional, but with a detailed roadmap it is infinitely easier. Armed with this exclusive template, you will be able to "pour" your unique story into this popular framework, creating an ironclad structural foundation to support your unique voice on the page.
