How to Write for Television (Madeline DiMaggio)

Another book I am considering for a possible textbook. This provides a good overview of how television writing works in the U.S. and all of the steps of the creative process and explains much of the practical realities of tv writing. The emphasis is on what you need to understand about the world on the inside in order to break in as a freelancer and get a staff job. As a crash course in how the world works this is not bad, but there is not much useful information on the actual craft of the writing process itself.
