Taught by Michael Poisson - Writer/Producer currently on Adult Swim's ROBOT CHICKEN & Netflix's RAISING DION & Creative Director for Silent Machine (Krysten Ritter’s Company)
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 four-week course, including a personal one-on-one phone consultation, 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!
In This 4-Week Program You Will:
"Mike's sample bibles were great and between those and his powerpoints, we knew what we had to do each week for our assignment and really had no questions. It was so helpful to get down in writing where this series is going and how it will end in ten years. He has really great insight and is thoughtful with his suggestions and criticisms. He was always spot on with his notes and suggestions." -Jennifer K.
“Mike Poisson is an excellent teacher and, through working with him, I finally understood the elusive Series Bible. It is something every writer who wants to work in TV needs to have. Mike broke the whole process down in an easy-to-understand way and was extremely knowledgeable and patient in guiding me through every step of the process of creating my first Series Bible!” -Kirk M.
