Martie Cook, professor and founding director of the College’s Center for Comedic Arts, spoke about what it takes to develop a new TV show, as Jennifer Hudson’s new talk show debuts today and takes the former time slot of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Good television simply looks flawless to viewers often, but it is a ton, ton, ton of work. All of the awards she’s won; she’s a newbie here. This is going to be very different for her.
WCVB’s Rhondella Richardson also visited Cook’s writing for TV class, speaking to students just before they pitched their loglines/beginning of concept for a tv show.
