Cast of Characters



Full Details


Next week, our TV Pilot competition opens. Start fleshing out your ideas by designing a cast of characters. Tell us each character’s name, age, main traits, and any other pertinent details about why this person is crucial to the unfolding plot. 

And one more task! To usher in 2017, craft a New Years resolution for each of your characters. What better way to understand the limitations and aspirations of your pilot cast?! Even if your show takes place in the distant past or far-flung future (or in the middle of the calendar year), do your best to imagine what each of your main characters would hope for themselves for the coming year, and what their intentions would be to realize such self-improvement. Need some inspiration? Angelina Nguyen shows us how it's done.
