FTII announces new TV writing course

PUBLISH DATE 22nd October 2018

The Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune, announced a six-month course on writing for television fiction, geared towards producing trained TV screenwriters, from February 11, 2019.

The 24-week course, oriented towards the television industry, will go on till July 26. Only 15 candidates will be selected based on their application and statement of purpose, which will be followed by a personal interview.

The director of FTII Pune Bhupendra Kainthola said, “In the Indian situation, discerning viewers do not respect most of what is shown on Indian TV — the daily soaps, dumbed-down storytelling, black and white characters. In contrast, the international situation is an entirely different story. TV has some of the finest screenwriting and ‘Game Of Thrones’, ‘The Newsroom’, ‘House of Cards’, ‘Homeland’, ‘Narcos’ and other shows have legions of followers.”

He said India still doesn’t have enough writers qualified to write such high-quality series. “It is to address this glaring gap that FTII Pune has designed this 24 week writing-intensive course,” he said.

Renowned TV writer and the course director Vinod Ranganath said, “Students successfully completing this course will come away not only with the knowledge of episodic writing but also with two full ‘bibles’ for two TV programmes in two different genres, ready to be pitched to broadcasters.”

The course is open to all graduates, with no age bar. The last date for applying is November 15, 2018. The course details are available on the website, ‘’.
