Festival stalwarts Phil Hughes and Ted Wilkes return to the stage to deliver their most demanded session – how to apply their model of storytelling to writing for TV.

Building on the work they have done in their text Character Is Structure: The Insider’s Guide to Screenwriting, the duo showcases how to develop dramatically compelling and dramaturgically engaging pilot for the Prestige TV Pilot you are writing.

Delegates in this session will come away with:

  • A deeper understanding of how to apply the philosophy of “Character Is Plot” to prestige TV.
  • A greater confidence that their writing is serving the demands of the genre in a way that appeals to producers and performers.
  • The mindset and approach of audiences that they can attract with very specific techniques.

Phil & Ted always impress and delegates leave their sessions energized and enthusiastic to dig into their features. Now you TV writers can have the same experience!
