Description - One-Hour Drama by Robert Del Valle

The hour-long drama, the staple of primetime television, is here dissected, examined, and discussed by a highly regarded, highly successful pro. The author's thorough knowledge of television producing, gleaned from his years of work on major, influential drama series, is here distilled and presented in a friendly way that will keep producers-to-be avidly turning pages. Charts, script excerpts, useful forms, and a glossary of industry terms embellish an in-depth text that takes the reader from a nascent series concept through the production and sale of its pilot to a broadcast or cable network. Every step along the way is covered, including: finding a fresh series concept; developing the pilot; casting; hiring directors, writers, and key crew members; budgeting; script breakdown; scheduling; production prep; production, from hair and makeup through transportation and shooting; post production; accepted accounting procedures; selling a pilot; what to do if your series is picked up; interacting with studios and networks. Written for a readership that encompasses young, aspiring producers and production students as well as industry insiders who wish to move into production work, this is the ultimate guide to current television drama production methods and skills.
