Writing TV Comedy: Dramatic Structure & Comic Development
      John Vorhaus defines seven steps of the "comic through line" through which each sitcom story unfolds. The heros goal is established, a door opens on the possibility of success, the hero appears to attain his desire, a monkey wrench is thrown, things falling apart, the hero risks everything. Vorhaus shows how the comic possibilities of a premise can be realized to the fullest by gradually and simultaneously raising the stakes of victory and escalating the jeopardy of failure.
