Accomplished writers from the renowned UCLA Extension Writers’ Program provide an invaluable how-to book for aspiring television screenwritersWhat does it really take to go from being a fan to professional television writer? For the first time outside the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program classrooms, TV writers whose many produced credits include The Simpsons, House, M.D., Friends, Dexter, Entourage, Parks and Recreation, Everyone Loves Raymond, and Pretty Little Liars take aspiring writers through the process of writing their first spec script for an on-air series (a “must” first step for all TV writers), creating one-hour drama and sitcom pilots that break out from the pack, and revising their scripts to meet pro standards. They also learn how to launch and sustain a writing career and get a rare, intimate look inside the year-long process of creating, selling, and getting a TV show made. Edited by Linda Venis, Director of the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program, Inside the Room is an unmatched resource to everything readers need to know to write their way into the Writers Guild of America.
