I'm strongly recommending Barb Doyon's new book, TELEVISION WRITING, which just came out on Amazon. You can grab the Kindle and start reading asap. Very practical. How TV writing differs from feature writing (in granular ways I hadn't considered). What it feels like to work as a writer in TV and life choices and tradeoffs required, how to format (in explicit detail). Invaluable.
