Sold Out - Waitlist Available

*Limited to Only 6 Writers*

Let’s imagine you have this half-hour comedy pilot you’ve been slaving over for weeks, months, or even a year. Whether this is the first draft, or you’ve been through more drafts than you care to remember, you feel that you need some help to figure out how to take the pilot to the next level.

Take this two-week course and get your pilot and pitch polished up in record time!

In Week #1:

  • Kegan will give each writer individual feedback on their comedy pilot's strengths and weaknesses (which he will read prior to the session). 

In Week #2:

  • Kegan will help each writer mold their comedy pilot pitch to perfection. 

Kegan will also cover what managers look for in potential comedy clients, overall do's and don'ts for writing comedy and the overall landscape of TV!
