Atlanta Writers Club workshop: Adapting a Book for Television

  • Georgia State University: Perimeter College - Dunwoody Campus 2101 Womack Road Dunwoody, GA, 30338 United States (map)

Nine Toe Productions' Joy Phenix and Austin Hodge join Calamity author and AWC member JD Jordan to introduce you the process of bring a book to the small screen. A very different process than adapting for film, adapting for TV is as much about the story of your story as it is about expanding your world across episodes and seasons. In this workshop, our presenters will take you through the book-to-TV process—looking at recent examples from their own portfolios as well as those of well-known shows you already love—and help you craft everything from pitches and loglines to one-sheets and show bibles. By the end of the session, you will have started transforming your book into something producers and studio executives will jump at!
