Staff Writer @ Perfect Harmony (NBC)
Saturday 10/3 @ 12:00pm - 1:30pm PT

Sold Out - Waitlist Available

Congratulations! You've finished your pilot. That's no small feat, and you're ready to take it out there and start marketing. But then you hear a question you hadn't thought of: what does your season one look like? While you may have thought about it in the abstract, actually articulating what this looks like as a show and what the driving force of the narrative will be is a different ball game. 

You need a well plotted season one arc, and a bible to go along with it! 

To help you navigate this stage of your writing cycle, Roadmap welcomes Charlotte Johnson to the webinar stage! Charlotte will break down how professionals plot their season ones, bible dos and don'ts, and how to pitch the arc succinctly in the room! 

We also have a few bible consult spots available after the webinar you can sign up for and get Charlotte's expert feedback on your bible draft! 

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • Story engines - what they are and how to identify them 
  • Character driven vs. plot driven storytelling 
  • Crafting the bible 
  • Live Q&A!
