There is a lot of work that goes into the production of a program. The more planning you do beforehand, the smoother the whole process will run. Think carefully about what you want the final production to look like, and write it down.
If you need ideas, watch other television shows while you’re planning. Pay special attention to details; placement of people, background music, transitions, locations, props. How is the show introduced? How does it close? Get a feel for how a typical show is organized. It will help you gear up for writing your own.
