- “STORY MAPS: TV Drama” e-book and worksheet. My e-book on TV pilot structure offers the first-ever beat sheet paradigm for the one-hour TV format, citing many hit shows as case studies, and I include a Story Map worksheet for you to break down your own story. I also have worksheets for the 30-minute sitcom and 30-minute dramedy formats.

My writing partner and I are finishing up a 1/2 hour single camera comedy pilot. Do you only consult on hour long dramas? Thanks in advance.
I consult on one hour and 30-minute pilots (or whatever variation you may have, like a web series). I will shoot you an email. Thanks. 🙂
