Reviews - What do customers think about Writing the TV Drama Series: How to Succeed as a Professional Writer in TV?
An overall Good Book..just a few Apr 28, 2008
1.) The interviews in this book are invaluable. Interviews from both film students and professional in the industry.
2.) First 32 pages of the book, in my opinion, was hard to follow, learn and understand due to choice of words. If I hadn't of read "Crafty TV writing" by Alex Epstein, prior to reading this book, I would have been lost. THis book is for beginners, but Alexs book is for the beginner of beginners.
3.) Nice grids on pages so that you can do some training at home.
4.) This book is extremely analytical. I liked it, but some people may not.
Overall a good book.

One of the Best Mar 25, 2007
I've read many, many books on writing for film and television, and this is one of the best ones. Worth twice the cover price!
A Definite Keeper Mar 4, 2007
I have read several books on the craft of TV drama development, and this one is by far the most comprehensive and helpful. As someone who doesn't have access to the great writing instructors of the left coast, this book is essentially my drama writing class. "Writing the TV Drama Series" is a wonderful A to Z look at what to expect in the rough and tumble world of professional television writing. Thanks, Pamela, for sharing your expertise with us!
Buy the book, read it, study it and your favorite TV shows, and get writing! Feb 11, 2007
I have read many books on writing for film and TV and this is by far the most comprehensive and best organized TV writing book on the market. I have required my class of Advanced Short Scriptwriting/TV Writing students at the University of New Hampshire to purchase the book, and I am encouraging them to hang onto it for the rest of their lives so they may refer to it easily and quickly.
