Film Set

Until you get a real, veteran Producer,  TV Showrunner,  or Agent, to READ your script and give you his honest feedback, you just don’t know for sure if your material is desirable to the studios.

You have got to submit your best version of your script around town.  Studios are not going to buy your script because it’s a good idea.

How’s the 3 act structure?  The character arcs?  The inciting incident, the “no turning back” moment,  the third act “all is lost,” and “dark night of the soul” plot points.

I will help you get everything in order so you have the best chance of selling your script.

How it works.

I read people’s screenplays, from the point of view of someone who’s sold screenplays, who’s been hired to develop them, been hired to do rewrites for them (even by Steven Speilberg)

I have written dozens of TV pilots, and created 5 TV shows, that went to series, some for 8 years.  I have written for over 30 TV shows, on staff, or freelance.

I have worked for a Studio Story Department, evaluating screenplays submitted for sale, and given RECOMMENDATIONS or PASSES based on the strength of material.

I know what producers and studios are looking for. It was my job to look for strong scripts and pass on the rest.

Send me your screenplay, your TV pilot, your spec TV episode, and I’ll go over it in detail, figure out how it could be improved to the point where it measures up to Professional Standards.

We’ll talk in person, or over the phone. If you’re stuck, I’ll help you come up with the fixes; the scenes you need, the dialogue you need, the story structure you need, or  the characters you need to sell you script.

I will promise you, that I will give you only CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM, that will improve you script.
