For those just tuning in–
–we just finished exploring the final Storyform for the first season of HBO’s Succession. For years I’ve been asked for a comprehensive look at how to use Dramatica theory to help construct and develop a television series–and now we have it.
We still have to do the wrap-up next week where we look at the entire season, and all the Storyforms we found (we found a total of 8 story forms spread acros 10 episodes) to see if there is one Storyform to rule them all, but once we do, I’ll find a way to package them all up together to make it easier for future writers to benefit from the entire group experience.
I cannot fully express how grateful I am to everyone who helped participate in these classes and offer their thoughts on potential inflection points for conflict and inequity. There is NO WAY I would have been able to do this without everyone’s input. So thank you those who helped accomplish this monumental venture.
