The Following Information Should Be Included In A Development Packages
Keep in mind, there are 2 types of executives you will need to convince your script has value to them. The Development executive wants to know about the creative. The Executive Producer wants info that tells how it meets current trends, budget, visual and other support information that appeals to their business needs.
Therefore, your package should contain short, concise descriptive notes about your script and information that shows why your project is marketable.

When is a Script Polish needed:
A Script Polish is needed for all scripts before they are submitted or pitched to investors, streaming, broadcast and industry executives. For a detail description of a script polish, see below.
Polish of a script should follow the same guidelines and standards investors, studios, streaming, and broadcast clients requires Susan to adhere to, when Polishing a script prior to them sending it to committee, approving it for funding or sending a script to production.
Some of the edits performed in our Script Polish:
Evaluate quadrant level and ways to increase it if it's not at 4
Review and evaluate if what is written reflects your vision, appeals to the audience it is targeted for and meets the needs entertainment and business needs of the industry executives you plan to submit it to.
Evaluate the flow, structure and strengths of the beginning, middle and ending of the storyline. Also perform an analysis of each scene to determine the smoothness of the transition to the next scene and it's overall impact on the story.
Where needed, enhance the dialogue to highlight the genre or a character’s approach to a specific scene and it's appeal to the targeted audience.
Look for scenes to cut or trim. Focus on dialogue that can be dropped or trimmed to enhance the scene description.
Evaluate the pace: A combination of dropping, switching, or reworking scenes to enhance the flow of the story line.
Depending on the genre: determine which scenes a characters actions can be increased to match the genre, i.e., for a comedy does it need more jokes, if drama does it need more tension, if action, does it need more violence etc.
Perform a final review and edits of entire script after all of above steps have been completed, to determine if it meets the vision of the writer and business or programming needs of the party it's being submitted to.
It is critical when pitching your script, to provide a package that includes a visual of your concept/script that captures an investor or executives attention and demonstrates your script meets their investment and programming needs.
