The TV PILOT Story Maps Master Class is for serious screenwriters who are willing to dedicate themselves to writing a winning pilot script for the current market in Hollywood.
In addition to working in the industry for years as a Senior Story Analyst and coaching screenwriters for almost two decades, I have spent hundreds of hours analyzing great television series to develop the most detailed beat sheet template for a TV series in existence. The result was my book Story Maps: TV Drama: The Structure of the One-Hour Television Pilot and this course, the TV Pilot Story Maps Master Class.
For an example of what you will be doing in the first month of the TV Pilot Story Maps Master Class, download my TRUE DETECTIVE pilot Story Map. This was an earlier version than the final version in my book, but it’s a good sample of my method to show you how I will guide you to map out your original pilot from the ground up, with ironclad, industry standard story structure.
“If you are looking for someone who combines
expert analysis with incredible credentials and experience,
put Daniel Calvisi in your script analyst black book.”
THE TV PILOT MASTER CLASS INCLUDES:
- My e-book, Story Maps: TV Drama.
- 8 weeks of lectures, assignments and notes from me and your peers.

“Dan, thank you for your support and professionalism.
First of all, I learned so much from your critiques and I
appreciate the way you pushed me to do better all the time.
I also now understand more about the business after the
critique from the industry advisors. It inspires me to

“I must say I would never have been able to complete the
script without your Master Class! I’m very proud of what
I’ve achieved, even if it still needs editing. It’s thrilling to start
with a mere idea and end up with characters we get attached to!”
