About This Activity

TV PILOT PRESENTATIONS, is an eight-week course that has as its goal a collection of deftly written documents: treatment(s), character descriptions, episode scenarios, promo script, and pilot script–the overall goal being a thoroughly thought through concept from beginning-to-end that can be read and defended in a pitch meeting, and to that end the student has complete access to all that The Comedy Lab and The iO Chicago has to offer, including a live staged reading of the student’s completed pilot script Saturday evenings from 6:45-8pm in the Chris Farley Cabaret. Here’s how it shakes out week-to-week: a concisely written treatment composed of three separate descriptions of the students concept in the form of a log line, a paragraph and a page (1st week); a studied list of the proposed series’ characters (2nd week); an equally studied list of at least six episode scenarios (3rd week); two two- minute promos designed to promo the concept of the show, as well as the outline for the pilot script (4th week); first half of the pilot script (5th week); second half of the pilot script (6th week); brutal rewrites (7th week); and, developing a business plan (8th week), all of which starts with the opportunity for the student to stage a reading of his or her pilot and solicit reactions from a live audience with an eye on a more concise final draft.
