THIS TIME WE AREN’T JUST CREATING
SKETCHES, WE’RE MAKING A WORLD
SUNNYSIDE, SCTV, LITTLE BRITAIN, THAT’S SO WEIRD, &
PORTLANDIA ARE ALL THEIR OWN WORLDS.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A NEW ONE.
(PART TWO OF SKETCH WITH GARY PEARSON)
When Dan Redican and I created Sunnyside, we knew we wanted to
create a ‘world’. A specific place where you’d find particular
characters. People would intersect with each other- some intimately
involved, others who had never met-but thrown together because
they shared a place.
Together in Gary Pearson’s Sketch World, we will create a unique
show made up of sketches set in one place with interesting
characters and situations. We will build it together. When and where
will it be? Who is there and what do they want? You’ll help decide.
The goal will be to have a show pilot that could be for stage or TV,
with character arcs, and running gags, all giving you the sense that
you are in that unique place. Get the fuller TV writing experience.
Take the next step in a writer’s room style workshop.
