Posted by on November 16, 2017

This past Tuesday, NALIP Members along with members from NBC’s affinity group, NBCUnidos took advantage of workshop led by writer Ligiah Villalobos “The Basics of Writing a TV Spec” open to NALIP Members.



With a room at full capacity, Ligiah Villalobos, who was previously featured in our #WeAreInclusion Campaign, shared insights on the intricacies of writing a TV spec, depending on genre and audience. With over 450 T.V. series currently on the air, aside from technique and structure, the workshop included tips to break through as a staff writer, shows to write specs for, and what to steer clear of.

Ligiah, teaches at Cal State University, Los Angeles and currently developing two TV series ideas herself, has worked as a studio executive, working at the Walt Disney Company. She has overseen the ABC Diverse Program and worked at the CW, overseeing six shows, such as Steve Harvey and The Jamie Foxx Show.
