Comedy Writing with Carter Bays

Join us for a comedy writing workshop with How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) co-creator Carter Bays! Learn how to write a pilot for a television series, from concept to outline to script. Topics will include creating strong characters, crafting a compelling story, and translating it all onto the page. We’ll use the pilot for HIMYM as a reference, as we work to bring our own ideas to life on the small screen.
