Pamela Douglas will present a three-day syllabus that relies on screening clips and full episodes of shows to demonstrate screenwriting techniques on 16, 17 and 18 August 2013 in Johannesburg.


The writer will discuss why American television is so successful and will elaborate on the global future of TV. There will be time for interactive discussions and participants interested in receiving feedback on their individual projects (such as pilots, how to create original series, working with focused attention on a current series), can consult her.

Douglas has numerous television credits and her work has received awards and nominations from American Women in Radio and Television and The Writers Guild of America, among others.  She is a professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles and is the author of the screenwriting book Writing the TV Drama Series.  Contact for bookings and information.
