Another great mini-course: Developing successful television

Many of you have described the Independent Production mini-course as one of the best educational experiences you've had at Park. Here's another great opportunity to learn from a professional:

Susan Reiner, our visiting professional at the LA Center, will be in Ithaca next week and will be offering a four-part mini-course on the creative and business sides of television development.

Here's the description:

An Insider's Look at TV Series Development is a four-part class that will present both the business and creative side of scripted tv series development, covering conception, pitching, production, series selection. The class will focus on the elements that feed successful, long-running series -- what makes a hit a hit. Class will feature screenings and in-class discussion and will be taught by Susan Reiner, the Pendleton Chair, Professional in Residence from Los Angeles. Susan has developed over 100 pilot scripts, worked with the top writers and directors in the industry and shot over 25 pilots.

Class hours: Sunday, April 3 (9:00 AM - noon, 1:00 PM to 5:30PM) and Monday and Tuesday, April 4-5 (5:30 PM - 9:00 PM).
