About the Book:

Want to make your own web series but don't know where to start? A first of its kind, Create Your Own TV Series for the Internet is all-in-one guide to creating short-form TV series for the Internet.

What if you have an idea for a TV show? How do you start creating it? The reasons to create a television series or web series for the Internet are nearly as varied as the Internet itself. But the reasons are all linked, in a sense, by one word: opportunity. Creative opportunity, financial opportunity, career opportunity, exposure opportunity, and the opportunity to improve your craft can all be yours if you create a great TV Series for the Internet. You may even land the very opportunity you've been seeking by churning out those full-length scripts – the chance to have your work discovered and seen on TV or in a theater. Mainstream Hollywood now combs the Internet each and every day looking not only for talent, but for material they can purchase and adapt into longer form.

For those skeptics who are still saying No way can a bunch of little two-minute video skits become a fully realized work like an acclaimed television series… well, I have two words for you: The Simpsons. That's right, the most successful scripted series in the history of television started life as a bunch of animated shorts that aired between live action sketches on The Tracy Ullman Show on Fox. In the 1980s and 1990s, creative execs frequented comedy clubs looking for original voices and characters upon which they could base a new TV series. Today those execs look for those fresh voices on the Internet.

So join the party. Join the 21st century. And let the opportunities begin. Entertaining and informative at the same time, Create Your Own TV Series for the Internet is one of a number of resources Ross Brown developed for his college courses on Byte-Sized Television. This book guides you from an initial series idea, through writing, production, and uploading and marketing a polished pilot (and successive episodes) of an original TV Series for the Internet. This is the second edition and has several new chapters and updated information from the first edition.
