You’ve written the pilot, it’s time to create the series. Everything has changed since 2011, including the business of television. And when I say everything, I mean everything.
The way series are bought.
The way series are conceived.
The way stories are told.
The way series are consumed.
The kinds of stories that can be told.
The limitations on content at every level.
The limitations on form at every level.
It’s a whole different ball game.
My new book, Creating The Series, will discuss the new expectations that come with storytelling. You can no longer walk into a pitch with an idea. You need to be prepared to explain where the series is going. Let’s work through these new rules and move beyond the concept.
Creating The Series will be available this spring.
