Getting LOST II: The TV Writers’ Room studies how the hit tv show LOST was made. We examine the process that any network goes through to establish and produce a tv show, with specific emphasis on ABC’s development of LOST. We then follow a similar process. As a class, we form a “Writers’ Room,” in which all of the students collaborate on brainstorming ideas and writing episodes for a full premiere season of a show of the class’ design. Mimicking a writing staff for any television series, all students are involved in formulating the plots and ideas for the show. Each episode is then co-written by two members of the Writers’ Room, utilizing the scriptwriting software “Final Draft.”
