What is NSI Totally Television?
This course provides hands-on series development training for producer/writer teams serious about getting their series concept made.
Each team is paired with execs from major Canadian networks, story editors and executive producers to help hone each concept and make it pitch perfect.
Past execs include Tassie Cameron (Rookie Blue), Vera Santamaria (Community) and David Barlow (King, The Border) and exec producers from Shaftesbury, Temple Street, Breakthrough and Omni.
The course gets results: over the past eight years, 12 TV series have gone into development with a Canadian broadcaster. Of those, five have been produced for television, one was piloted for Citytv and one was turned into a feature film.
