For this week's screenwriting tip we revisit advice screenwriter Stephany Folsom shared about writing TV pilots.

If you're trying to break into television writing, don't miss Tom Benedek's webinar on Wednesday, March 30th on The Television Plunge: Create a Great Half Hour Cable/Streaming Comedy Pilot. You do not have to attend the live event to get a recording of the presentation.

From the beginning of summer to the start of fall is when the networks decide whether or not they are going to buy the pilot you wrote. It's the start of television development season, so it seems like the perfect time to talk about writing and (hopefully) selling a TV pilot.

Many writers these days are frustrated with the limited opportunities in the feature business so they are transitioning into television. Don't get me wrong, television writing is fun and amazing, but don't jump in without a full grasp of what's involved in getting something on the air. There's no such thing as an easy paycheck. Hopefully, I can arm you with a little TV writing knowledge so you can manage your expectations, know what you're up against and boldly go forward to write and sell your first pilot.
