Anyone who's been a professional sitcom writer knows that the most fun part of the job is being locked in a room with incredibly funny people. Yes, at times you want to tear your hair out, but even then -- imagine going to work and laughing for ten hours every day.
And more and more sitcoms are being room-written these days. Shows like BIG BANG THEORY don't assign scripts to individual writers. The entire staff sits around a table and cobbles the draft together. The more training you have in this unique way of writing, the more marketable you become.
And this is the only seminar/workshop that teaches you those skills.
It's a great learning experience, a great bonding experience, a great glimpse into the real workings of television. But be forewarned -- this is only for people who enjoy laughing.
For details, just go here. Registration is limited to only 20 attendees. Each person gets personal attention. Soon I will announce when registration is open. But if you're on the email alert, you will get the word before I post it in the blog.
Once again. Here's where you go to learn more. I've already had one graduate land a staff job on a network show. Whether you're interested in becoming a sitcom writer or just want a "fantasy camp" experience to see what it's like working on a TV show, the SITCOM ROOM is for you.
Here's an article that T.V. critic Alan Sepinwall wrote for the N.J. Star-Ledger about the first Sitcom Room. You'll notice a lot of the article is devoted to whether the sitcom is dead? I think we can agree, now five years later, that the sitcom is back and only getting stronger, which is good news for me. I sure didn't want to start the PROCEDURAL DRAMA ROOM.
