I've got some ideas for a Veronica Mars spec but I'm worried that VM has too narrow an audience to work as a spec. So: how do you feel about speccing a small audience show like Veronica Mars or The Wire?
Question isn't how big the national audience is. The question is how big the showbiz audience is. I'd guess Veronica Mars
is a good show to spec. If you've been reading around, you've seen Joss Whedon rave about it, and so do John Rogers. If they're watching, other writers are watching it too. Also, it's structurally a good show to spec. It has an uberplot, but it's fairly episodic, so you can slip an episode into the chronology more easily. It doesn't require technical know-how like CSI
does. You can show your chops without overdoing the research. The Wire
, on the other hand, is critically acclaimed, but I don't hear people talking about it so much. Other good choices would be Entourage
, I think, and Rescue Me
Thought you would find this interesting - what twilight zone episode have we fallen into?
I've also heard the same thing about VM being a good show to spec and I'm almost done with my VM spec.
