Developing television scripts

Mystery! Action! Romance! This is all in a night’s work for the students of English 112. English 112: Intro to One-Hour Teleplay teaches students the fundamentals to write 1-hour teleplays for primetime television shows like “Lost,” “Supernatural,” and even “Ugly Betty.” Each student will learn the basics and write a “spec script” by the end of the semester.

Swim team dominates

The Riverside City College swim team dominated Palomar College in a meet March 30, held at California Baptist University.
