If you’re anything like us, you love horror—the kind that gets you thinking the things that go bump in the night are just around the corner. We all have our favorites on the big screen, and we all have our favorites on the small screen. Because TV horror is its own adventure with its own requirements. From Haunting of Hill House to American Horror Story, we've seen some chilling horror tales grace the small screen. But what are the requirements for TV horror? How do you craft a tale that can generate story ideas for years to come? 

To answer all this and more, Crypt TV's Jasmine Johnson is here with a special two week clinic! 

This Two Week Clinic Will Cover:

  • The ins and outs of the horror genre 
  • How to write dynamic and compelling characters 
  • How to craft a sustainable TV story engine within the genre
  • Feedback on your material
