The Process of a TV Show Coming to Life w/ TV Exec

Roadmap has hosted Webinars covering the structure of a TV episode, how a TV episode is broken out, the writer’s rooms, and others, but how does a TV show go from a great idea in your head all the way to premiering the pilot on TV for audiences everywhere?

Maia Glikman (currently at Shay Mitchell's production company and formerly the Coordinator at Sony Pictures Television) is here to pull back the curtain on this often misunderstood process.

Maia will lead writers step by step through the process: coming up with an idea, writing it, involvement of representation, finding producers, finding a showrunner, finding a network, casting, all the way to what happens once it’s filmed. (Hint: that doesn’t guarantee a pick up!)


This 90-Min. Webinar Will Cover:

  • What name value means
  • All the moving parts needed to get a TV show off the ground
  • A better understanding of the process from start to finish
  • Why you most likely won’t be the showrunner of your TV series
