If you’re an aspiring screenwriter with an interest in television, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of a TV series bible, but if you’ve never actually pitched a show, there’s a chance you’re not 100% clear about what that is. A series bible can be an essential tool in pitching a television show. It’s used as an additional way to explain the tone, look and themes of your pilot.

During this weekend two-day session writers will learn how to craft their bible for their Television Series and create a pitch document outlining their show. Through writing exercises, group workshopping, and looking at existing shows and their series bibles -- writers will gain a thorough insight into what it takes to get your show ready for the next level.

Last session will include a Q&A skype session with industry experts. Past guests have included writer's (Leftovers, Westworld, House), Literary Managers and Agents, and Studio Executives.

Instructor: Marishia Mukerjee helped create the very first FilmDayton Festival in 2009 when she was on the FilmDayton Board. She's been a location manager, producer and filmmaker, and successful writer. Her writing/producing credits include: The Bridge (FX), Heroes Reborn (NBC), Quantico (ABC), Titans (DC Streaming), Shantaram (Apple).
