Hey friends! I hope all is well. I was just curious if any one has resources/advice on the format of a tv series bible? I'm writing a web series, and am new to writing "bibles".
Copy the link below to share this page:
we basically just read as many of those as we could find from all over the place and then found our own style a bit. We have - in previous pitch sessions - been asked where the idea for our bible format came from so be aware of that and realize you might need to answer that.
Jarrod, I hope this helps. Another moderator posted these references in the Screenwriting section: http://johnaugust.com/library http://dannystack.blogspot.ie/2007/06/bible-bashing.html https://sites.google.com/site/tvwriting/bibles
I have written a few series bibles already. In the EDUCATION section under WEBINARS there is one from last year instructed by Michael Poisson on how to craft a series bible. https://www.stage32.com/webinars/How-To-Write-a-TV-Series-Bible Beth lists some great resources! I also have the TRUE DETECTIVE first season series bible you can find via a Google search. I first learned how to write a Treatment and then the series bible. After you purchase the webinar, you can download it and watch it as many times as you want. I even took screenshots to have each slide up as I write the bible. If you can not find the TRUE DETECTIVE one on line, private message me and I will send it right over to you!
