i want to write a half hour comedy pilot to use as a writing sample.
here are some things i’ve been thinking about:
i had several different ideas, but narrowed it down and decided on one after brainstorming and pitching to some friends.
the idea i picked is high concept, but i don’t think that’s necessarily an advantage. most sitcoms are not high concept at all. most are some variation of family show, but the specific characters and the execution are what sets them apart.
