How to Make a Drama Series
Create an Idea.If you want to create any TV series, you need an idea. Something that you can base your show around. Casualty is based around an ED department and Eastenders is based around the inhabitants of a square.
Create a script.The script is what your actors and crew will follow to know what they say/do and what the episode is all about. Before writing your script you should create notes about characters, storylines and ideas - this should be the bible to follow when writing. You cannot have a show without a script - or series bible.
Start thinking about production.If you want to produce it yourself, then you will need actors, film, sound and directors. If you want a company to produce it for you then send the script into them, along with a short pitch (a page or so on what the show is about). You have more chance if you send the script into a company that produces similar shows. Or you can just send the script to everyone.
If accepted, the company usually offers money, ask for a writing agent fist.They will guide you on the amount of money to sell your idea for and will make sure the company is treating you fairly.
Create a Pilot.The pilot episode is the first episode in your series. The events that happen in the pilot are what the show should be based around. Normally, after the pilot, the audience is asked what they think about it. If they like it, more episodes will be commissioned - if not, then the end is near.
FILM!. Once you have everything you need, and the audience approves, you can start filming your show. You can film in a closed studio or get the audience in to watch (this normally happens with sitcom).
Advertise!No body will watch the show if they don't know about it.
QuestionHow do I create my own dramatic movie with only three people?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerDesign your drama to feature no more than three characters. If you want a whole set of characters, you'll have to still limit the number of characters that can appear in a scene to the number you have available, but you can use costume and makeup to alter each of the three of your actors to play multiple roles.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I make a dramatic script that can make people cry in the end?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerWriting dramatic scripts that truly play to the emotions of audience members is very difficult to do. Do not make your end goal "make my audience cry," as this will result in a cheap, trashy play with a very generic ending that everyone finds stale and not sad at all. Instead, your end goal should be to leave the audience with some sort of feeling - whether it be happy, sad, bittersweet, stressed... anything is better than nothing. Maybe even try writing a few different scripts before jumping into a tear-jerking drama.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I just need to make a school drama?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTo create a school drama, you should write out everyone who wants to be involved. Then, have one person write the script or wok on it together, assign roles and practice your performance.Thanks!
QuestionWhat should I do if I just need to make a drama series for YouTube?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou would follow the same steps, but you probably wouldn't need to advertise. You could just post the link online or send it to your friends.Thanks!
QuestionI want to make my drama, but it is very hard for me. How can I do this?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou want to read and watch as many plays as possible to get ideas. When you start writing, don't stop.Thanks!
QuestionWhat does a series script look like?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerJust Google "television script sample," there are plenty of examples to guide you. Check the "images" if you just want to get a visual. They're not all the same but there is a pretty standard format.Thanks!
QuestionCan I do this by myself?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerA one-person show is very unlikely to be a successful drama series, but it's possible.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I write a script for a drama?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThanks!
QuestionI want to make a drama, but I don't have any money or sponsors. What should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTry filming a low-cost movie on your own. You could use a cheap camera or your phone and edit your movie with free editing software. Post it online and see if it generates enough interest to find sponsors.Thanks!

- Don't create something that is too similar to another program, chances are it won't be produced.
- Watch other dramas before creating your own, see what the channel wants to produce or what the audience likes watching.
- Attend a writing course or get your friends to read the script before submitting it. See what they think of it and whether they like the sound of the show.
- Base your show on real life. Most TV shows are based on the writers lives or experiences.
- Don't create a story line that's too similar to another. Change it slightly first.
- Create a show name that you came up with, don't steal a name.
- Don't say anything racist or sexist in the script, it won't be accepted. The only way you are allowed to write in prejudice if you have character saying prejudice things, make sure the character is a bad person though. For example, if a favourite character is a minority and the shows main bad guy beats him up, then everyone will feel sorry for the good guy and hate the bad guy.
