Shonda Rhimes Teaches Writing for Television Review

0/100 ratings

It’s been said Shonda Rhimes had to do a Take 2 and start over when pitching Grey’s Anatomy. As they say in the trade, “You’ve come a long way baby.“ Original jitters far behind, since then Rhimes has helmed some of TV’s biggest hits. Grey’s Anatomy, How to get away with murder, and even a couple of screenplays attest to her writing ability for both TV, and Film. In her class she shares writing techniques for creating a pilot, including scripts as reference, ‘how to’ notes on pitching your ideas, crafting memorable characters, and the all-important bibles that are the production blueprints for a series.

From producer, director, showrunner, writer for both TV and Film, and executive producer, Shonda’s shares her hands on experience in these 30x10-15 minute MasterClass segments. Beyond the nuts and bolts ‘how to’ teaching, students will soon discover that this woman exudes ambition and the willpower to succeed. Her father told her that “The only limits to your success is your own imagination.” Debuting in 2005, Grey's Anatomy is going into its 16th season and has won a Golden Globe for best Drama Television series. It would appear, her imagination has no limits and that has been the driving force for her considerable success.

Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you’re a director. Everything after that you’re just negotiating your budget and your fee.
