Biographical note:

Over the past two decades, Linda Venis has guided the growth of the UCLA Extension Writers Program into the nation’s largest creative writing and screenwriting program. She lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband and daughter.

Main description:

Accomplished writers from the renowned UCLA Extension Writers’ Program provide an invaluable how-to book for aspiring television writers

What does it take to go from being a TV fan to a professional TV writer?  Television writers whose many produced credits include The Simpsons; Mad Men; Frasier; X-Files; Battlestar Gallactica; CSI: Miami; Law and Order; and House, M.D.; take aspiring writers through the process of writing their first spec script for an on-air series, creating one-hour drama and sitcom pilots that break out from the pack, and revising their scripts to meet pro standards. They also learn how to launch and sustain a writing career and get a rare look inside the process of creating, selling, and getting a TV show made. Edited by Linda Venis, Director of the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program, Inside the Room is an unmatched resource for everything readers need to know to write their way into the Writers Guild of America.

 

Review quote:



"Venis corrals an accessible and useful guide for anyone with the dream and the drive who needs to know, practically, what to do. An engaging and helpful how-to for hopeful TV writers or anyone interested in the nuts and bolts of this ephemeral art."
Kirkus Reviews

“Inside the Room should be required reading for anyone embarking on or dreaming of a career in television. Like the classes I took at UCLA Extension when I was starting out, it demystifies the process of becoming a working television writer and tells you how to go about it. Most of all, it lets you know it’s possible”
—Carol Barbee, writer/producer, Touch, Hawaii Five-O, Jericho, and Judging Amy


“Aspiring television writers have found their bible in Inside the Room.  It is an honest, insightful and incredibly accurate depiction of how the modern television system works. No book can guarantee success, but this one will get you as close as any can!”
—Lee Hollin, Director, Drama Development, CBS Television Studios
