Mixing interviews, essays, and representative scripts of three
successful television dramatists, the book will be of immeasurable
use to the novice scriptwriter.
Designed to inspire the fledgling scriptwriter, this book
combines analytical essays on the work of three successful
television writers with interviews and complete scripts printed in
correct professional format. The writers Marion Hargrove (Maverick,
The Waltons), James Daugherty (thirtysomething), and Michael Kozell
(Hill Street Blues) are used as examples of professionals who
developed a personal voice and a distinctive style while serving as
staff writers for existing prime-time television programs.
Douglas Heil theorizes that students of television scriptwriting
need to engage in "close study of exemplary writing" and the three
full scripts he offers are useful models of humane and entertaining
drama. The book is not only of value to aspiring scriptwriters but
also to those readers with a general interest in media history.
