What's Needed

What's Needed To Submit Your Script To

Studios, Streaming, Cable, and Broadcast Companies 

 

Changes That Film, Streaming, Cable, and Broadcast Companies Have Made For Submitting Scripts.

 

The process begins with the following:

Step1. Executive Producers: No longer is it mandatory to have an agent or "know someone" to submit your script for you. The creative and business execs within studios and streaming companies that review or send your project to committee, do not care who you know.

Note:  Industry Executives are only interested in how the person approved for submitting your script has created or produced content for their company or that of their competitors, along with knowledge and experience with developing information about your project that's specific to addressing their creative and production needs.

  • Make sure you do your research when searching for an Executive Producer or Producer for assistance. IMDB.com will help to confirm credits from major studios, streaming, or broadcast companies. 

 

 

Step2. Polished Script. Why the first 10 pages of your script are critical to having your script read or "Passed" on.

Step3. Development Presentation. This document is required to submit your script to film and streaming companies. What needs to be included in a Development Package. 

 

​​Step4. Submitting your script. How studios and streaming companies decide what scripts they will accept and review.

Dev Presentation

Your Development Package is required for submitting your script to film, streaming, cable, and broadcast companies.

Your script is not the only or possibly even the first document that industry executives often will want to review first.

  • The Development Executive which all companies have will want to know immediately, what genre is your script, (in 1 sentence) what is it about, is there talent attached, what is a high and low budget for it, and what level quadrant is it?

  • They will want to have answers to those questions before they read the first 10 pages of your script.

  • This is the reason why Development Packages are critical to including information that meets both the creative and production needs of the company you're submitting to.

 

 

Note: A DP may be called a different name by different executives, but the information that needs to be included in whatever you call it, is consistent throughout the industry when submitting your script.

Script Development and Polish 

 

When polishing your script for submitting to an Industry Executive, the

first 10 pages of your script will determine if the review continues, or your script is Passed on.
Click here if assistance is needed in developing your script.
  • Script Polish: Includes a thorough review, evaluation, and edit (if needed and with writer's permission) of how a scripts meets industry writing standards, if what's written meets the vision of the writer, and the script's ability to capture and hold the attention of the audience it's targeted for. 

 

Why are the first 10 pages of a script so important?
  • The viewing audience has an abundance of great content available on multiple devices and platforms to capture their attention. Research has shown there is an extremely short amount of time a film or series has to grab, hold, and capture the imagination of an audience. That’s why most films and series tend to excite and grab the attention of the targeted audience within the first 2 pages (first 2-3 mins.)

For example, Law & Order starts off every episode with something that happens in the first minute!

That's the hook, then the question (who did it) and it's written for a level 3 quadrant.​​​

The writing and creative structure of a script should reveal the following within the first 10 pages:

  • High Concept: What is the hook that makes the audience want to keep watching?

  • What is the CQ (Central Question of the story.) The script begins with an action, that creates the central question "who, what, or why. 

  • What Quadrant Level is the script? Quadrant is defined as what demographic does it appeal to. A movie that appeals to all four major demographics both male and female, and both over and under the age of 25 is a level 4 Quadrant.

 
  • Is Script Evergreen: Is a script that is tied to time and can be viewed any time of the year.
 
  • Does the genre meet current viewing trends?
