A freelance television writer uses spec scripts or their previous credits and reputation to get contracted by an existing tv show to write one or more episodes. After the episode is written, the teleplay is submitted to the network and rewriting or polishing may be required. Subsequent drafts of the script may be done by the freelancer or by the show's staff.

great ... but are there any good professional colleges offering script writing course...
Another important thing is to live a life, do things and do more than just go on a writing course; you need something to write about. One of the BBC's top writers was a market trader (not the financial type, but the sort that runs a stall in a street market) and now runs his own production company. He only went on courses after he got picked up by the BBC after sending in a number of speculative scripts.
There are a quite a few courses, the film schools usually have a script writing course. You can also do short courses or workshops. If you want to go on one of these courses you should be writing now (short stories, whatever), if you're not perhaps it's not really for you.
