The good people over at UCLA Extension wrote up a nice piece about me getting my first writing job. I’m a big fan of their programs. If you are thinking about taking one of their classes I highly recommend it. Below is the article and a link to their blog.
From UCLA Extension:
Nicholas Anthony, who we’ve written about before, has landed his first television writing job on the new fall CBS show The Inspectors, which focuses on a family working for the Postal Inspection Service, one of the oldest federal law enforcement agencies in the US.
Nicholas honed his craft in Writers’ Program screenwriting courses before winning Best Original Half-Hour TV Pilot in the 2013 Final Draft, Inc. Big Break Contest for his script Never Famous. Now, he is a paid television writer.
“The Writers’ Program at UCLA Extension was the final training I needed to be ready for the professional TV writing market place,” says Nicholas. “The classes I took and the people I met prepared me for exactly what I would need to know once I was on the job. If you are trying to become a professional screenwriter or are looking for the beginning of your education, I can’t recommend their programs enough.”
