The Secrets of the TV Mini-Series & Anthology Stories: PART THREE – Endings


Whether it’s Ryan Murphy’s ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE, THE PEOPLE VS. O J SIMPSON, Nic Pizzalatto’s TRUE DETECTIVE, Noah Hawley’s FARGO or FEUD, a big trend in TV now is the mini-series or ‘closed end’ anthology show. Let Peter Russell (who sold a mini-series in 2017) show you the patterns and tools he’s learned that helped him create a successful mini.

You’ll learn how to think about your characters, how to create the vivid and original world, the keys to powering your storylines, and the fundamental secret that both keeps your audience interested over the entire course of the story – and also organizes your story crescendos (there are four) for you! Peter shows you examples of how the greatest writers in this genre do what they do — so that you can do it, too. This isn’t just academic ‘analysis’ – Peter has used these tools himself to create sellable TV.

  1. Terrific finale to the TV Mini-Series trilogy of classes


    In his inimitable, generous style, part three of Peter’s TV Mini-Series classes was a bonanza of deep learning. Breaking down the emotional sequencing and theme-building of great Mini-Series writing into accessible bites, with plenty of illustration to anchor the more technical ideas in my mind. Much to take away, and very useful for burgeoning TV writers.
