How to Write for Television

For nearly 20 years, Madeline DiMaggio's HOW TO WRITE FOR TELEVISION has been a trusted guide for screenwriters around the world. Her clear and concise manual is packed with examples from real television scripts, anecdotes from TV writers, and sound advice for not only writing your own TV scripts, but developing a network of contacts to take it from page to screen. HOW TO WRITE FOR TELEVISION has sold steadily over the years, but the television landscape, especially in the last 5 years, has changed dramatically. The emergence of reality TV, ground-breaking and award-winning shows like The Sopranos, Sex and the Cityand The Wire, and the revamping of the sitcom format with The Office, have completely changed the standards by which TV writing is measured. Completely revamped, using examples, interviews, and sample scripts from these and more (including Nip/Tuck, Grey's Anatomy, and The West Wing). She will address the changes in the TV scene, as well as the specific issues of character, structure and pace. New chapters on writing for cable and TV movies will also be added. Revised and updated, HOW TO WRITE FOR TELEVISION will continue to help budding writers reach their silver screen goals, and will prepare them for working in today's TV world.
