If the summer of 2011 is any indication, intellectual properties based on graphic novels and science-fiction concepts are here to stay as they collectively generate billions of dollars in box office receipts and other ancillary markets.

Join creator/writers Geoffrey Thorne (In the Heat of the Night, TNT's Leverage, Ben 10, Star Trek: Titan novel), Anthony Montgomery (Star Trek: Enterprise, VH1's Single Ladies) and Brandon M. Easton (WB's new ThunderCats series, Transformers: Armada, as they provide information and guidance for writers interested in sci-fi/fantasy, graphic novels and breaking into the Hollywood scene. -- Check the new series!
