Matt asks:
Q. I was wondering if you could post some of your old scripts on the site, like some other writers do? It's helpful for us [aspiring] monkeys to see how the pro [monkey]s do it.
I'll ask some of the shows I've worked on if this is cool. Bear in mind none of the scripts I've written for TV are solely my own work. Everything I wrote for NAKED JOSH had the heavy involvement of my co-creator and my producer. Everything I wrote on CHARLIE JADE was trying to follow Bob's vision. So I don't feel creative ownership of the scripts. If God willing the show I'm writing now goes, I'll eventually post some of my scripts.

In the mean time, check out these links to downloadable scripts:

Hi Alex,

Two questions.

1) Given the plethora of web serials I wonder if you could speak to the difference in structure and story when writing a web serial vs breaking up a TV script into 3-5minute chunks and calling the result a web serial. In other words, if I can't sell my idea to television producers and want to go it alone, how might the script change?

2) I've tried clicking on your "who is Alex" link but it never seems to load. Something you can do or is this a problem on my side?

Thanks for blogging.

Also nice to read would be any features you may have written. Particularly of interest to us spec-monkeys would be specs that sold, even if they were later re-written or canned.

Thanks :)

Great posting. Just FYI.

"Lost" scripts, from the Hatch - http://www.writerdirector.net/thehatch/scripts/index.html
is a dead site. Try http://www.dailyscript.com/tv for those "lost" scripts

Internet Movie Script Database (search engine)
http://www.imsdb.com/
destructive popups and weird script formatting and a lot of transcripts passed off as scripts

LunaLounge - http://www.geocities.com/thelunalounge/site/sections/_screenplays.html
Most script links are dead. Hasn't been updated in a long time

ScriptCrawler (search engine)
http://www.scriptcrawler.net/
Most script links are dead. Hasn't been updated in a long time

Drew's Script-O-Rama
http://www.script-o-rama.com/snazzy/dircut.html
Most script links are dead. Hasn't been updated in a long time

simplyscripts - change links to http://www.simplyscripts.com/movie.html for movie scripts - the rest of the site has unproduced scripts

I would, however add http://www.weeklyscript.com - great site. No ads, just scripts.
