Sean Farina
Writer's Assistant/TV Writer (LOST, ONCE UPON A TIME, HAWAII FIVE-0)

"Really great tips and info from the presenter. Sean provided information that is relevant for beginning and more experienced writers that sets a foundation for success beyond the page and into meetings and production." -Anonymous Screenwriter (via feedback form)

When most of us watch TV, we’re absorbed in the characters and story. We don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the journey that episode went on to reach its audience. From the initial pitch of the concept in the writers’ room, to casting, to production, to post, that episode has gone through a transformation in order to be on your screen. And if you want to write for TV, this is a process you’ll need to have an understanding of.

That’s why Roadmap asked TV Writer Sean Farina here to explain it all!

This 70-Minute Webinar Covers:

  • The writers’ room
  • Casting and production
  • The edit
