Arvon at Home Masterclass: The A-Z of Developing a TV Show

Zoom masterclass with Sally Abbott

Thursday January 13th 2022, 11:00am GMT


The journey of a TV show from the kernel of an idea through to the green light, goes through many stages. During this Masterclass Sally Abbott will draw on her global hit BBC Drama The Coroner to demystify and explore this process. She will provide useful exercises for various stages of project development, and tips on how to stay sane whilst taking your project from idea to screen. By the end of this Masterclass you should be inspired, motivated and have new tools at your disposal to help you develop a TV series. We recommend that before the session, participants watch an episode of The Coroner and buy a copy of a weekly TV guide.

The Masterclass will be delivered via Zoom and will last two hours (11am – 1pm) including time for you to write. You will need to have a computer or smart device and a reliable internet connection in order to participate. Bookers unable to join the live session will be able to view this Arvon Masterclass for up to two weeks after the event. You must book your place before the event starts in order to access this facility.

As part of our wider effort to increase participation in the arts, concessionary places are available for this course.

Cost: £35 (concession: £17.50)

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."

"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
