Getting my first Network TV Writing Job
At the age of 17, I chose to become a pro scriptwriter, and as weird as it may sound to me, I was recently recruited to do a new show on CBS's The Inspectors (which will be aired in autumn 2015). Here is a short history of how this came about.
So, I signed up for the well respectable but accessible script writing programme at the MCTC in Minneapolis. There, I was studying with the great and secretive Hafed Bouassida, who was studying cinema at the renowned Prague Cinema School. I have learnt from Hafed the foundations on which all other aspects of my writing are based.
Though I wished our friendship had gone on beyond my schooling, he was the kind of tutor I needed to start my own professional world. First one we made was a Twilight Zone thing named Breakables. Together with my producer colleagues Wayne Johnson and Brendan Eddy we shot the WWI shortfilm The Nihilist.
It was the tale of a depressive British warrior who had died and chose to kill himself in the midst of a war in the trenches. Having produced this shortfilm and asserted himself well on the indie filmfestival markets. I' d already done my first long features writing and wrote a series of TV specifications (Modern Family, 30 Rock, It's Always in Philadelphia ), but now I needed links.
Fortunately, the expansion of UCLA brought me into the group. Then I began working on a job named My Girlfriend's A Dollar and during this period I was invited to work at the CBS show The Inspectors. I completed my first screenplay for The Inspectors last months.
I' ll say it again, OUTLINE, OUTLINE, OUTLINE, OUTLINE, OUTLINE! It' simple to want to begin writing, but most pros work like that. Inspectors are shooting this year in Charleston, SC, and if I'm unlucky, they might give me a camera so I can have my Hitchcock second.
