Writing a scene that takes place in scene on a television

Hey guys

Just wondering how you would set out a scene that takes place on a television in scene, as in the main character is watching a TV show

They way I'm thinking of setting out the scene is having the scene play as if its live then pull back to reveal its on a television being watched by the main character.

Its only a short film idea, I'm thinking if I finish it and get around to shooting it, I'll have to shoot whats on the television separately, so would it be beneficial to write a separate script of what's happening on the television, for the benefits of shooting it.

If so, that's cool, but just wondering how to set it out in the main script.

Hope that makes sense.

Cheers, guys
