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.

His debut novel, The Mutual Friend, a hilarious and thought-provoking story following a sprawling cast of New Yorkers as they navigate life, love, loss, ambition, and spirituality, and is available wherever books are sold.

He is an executive producer for HIMYM’s spinoff series, How I Met Your Father, which premiered on Hulu earlier this year. His other writing credits include Oliver Beene, American Dad!, and the Late Show with David Letterman.
