WATCH Presents: As Seen On TV

2000px-As_seen_on_TV.svgMAKE YOUR OWN EPISODE OF TV

Have you ever thought that ending of LOST was the worst? Like, “I can do better than that” worst? And they killed the mother! Wait, nevermind. Anyway, here’s your shot! Starting this semester, alternative theatre group WATCH is hosting an event where students have the chance to write, act in, or direct an original episode of their favorite TV show. Students will submit scripts of an episode of a TV show, and then work with a writer’s room where interested parties will help design the program. Directors will have one week to stage one of the scripts. And finally, the episodes are brought to life in front of an audience!

Dates: Submission for writers is Nov. 6th and actors/directors will be needed in subsequent weeks (stay tuned!)

Submission Deadline: Friday, November 6
