Developing the TV Streaming Series
Writing and Producing has dramatically changed
The “Developing the TV Streaming Series” guide takes you through the key elements that any filmmaker must know when developing TV series and films for online streaming services from the standpoint of the writer and producer.
Online Streaming Services have dramatically changed the game when it comes to watching television, and with it, changes to the process of writing and producing television.
Appointment television, where viewers or family members gather in the living room to watch the same program at the same time, is quickly becoming a relic of the past. Today, it’s all about “binge-watching”– watching on a mobile phone, tablet or on a TV HD Screen, multiple episodes of a TV series in one sitting or over a weekend.
With online streaming, the way we consume a TV series has changed irreversibly. This means writing and producing television has also dramatically changed. New rules have replaced the old when it comes to developing and producing a series or film for streaming services.
