Description - Writing Sitcoms by John Byrne

Almost every writer, whether professional or beginner, has thought of a good sitcom idea at one time or another, but fleshing that idea out is a long and complicated process of character development, plotting, dialogue writing and rewriting and then putting the whole package together in a way that will attract producers.;In this handbook, sitcom writers John Byrne and Marcus Powell seek to break that process down into a series of easy-to-follow steps. With chapters devoted to concept, characters and plot through to proposals, commissioning and production, the volume aims to cover every aspect needed for success in the UK. It draws on a wide range of popular sitcoms as examples and provides a comprehensive selection of relevant publications, Web sites and organizations.
