Television and Screen Writing, Third Edition explains specific, proven techniques for writing marketable scripts and reveals the secret of how to create the driving force that is the cure of all commercially successful TV and motion picture scripts. Updated appendices include listings of screenwriting festivals and professional workshops, film/video commissions and arts agencies, major studios and production companies, TV networks, Cable and Pay TV, and professional unions and associations.
