Lost changed network television forever.
We’re in quarantine and it seems like we have endless opportunities to revisit the shows that formed us as people. For me, it was Lost. When Oceanic Flight 815 crashed on the island I was transfixed.
From the very first frames, Lost taught me so much about writing—I don’t think I even knew it at the time. And most of it was communicated in the pilot.
With the way Hollywood is going, there are way more opportunities to be a TV writer to work in features. Having a pilot you’ve written that you’re proud of can provide many more opportunities in the long run.
It can open you up to selling a TV show, staffing, or getting your foot in the door as an assistant.
But to write a great pilot, you need to learn from one of the best.
