Writing for Television
with Ins Choi

Class Description

It’s been said that we’re living in a golden age of television. It’s certainly true that serial formats are home to some of the most creative and compelling storytelling happening today. In this class, award-winning writer and show runner Ins Choi will share everything he learned while creating Kim’s Convenience. Okay, maybe not everything, but a lot of things. Participants will together form a writers’ room and learn the steps of creating a tv show, demystifying the process and inspiring them to create their own shows.
