You have an amazing series idea, you have the first season mapped out in your head, you have your pilot ready to go - and then an exec asks you for your series bible. This is a roadblock for many writers because there is no set template for what a bible looks like! And while there are many styles of bibles, all must still contain the same core elements or they are considered incomplete. Roadmap is happy to bring in Mike Poisson to teach a class all about how to create your own series bible!
In this flexible four-week program, Mike will break down examples of existing series bibles and walk you through the essential elements of each to help guide you in creating a bible for your own series! Plus, this on-demand class includes four personal one-on-one phone consultations with Mike to receive feedback on your assignments after you view each lecture recording.
