Coming in on the second week of my three week writing room for my TMN series, things are picking up. We spent the first seven days with me pretty much trying to explain and clarify my vision of the series. I'm surprised to discover just how ambitious my series actually is. Apparently I'm trying to do for a genre series what HBO has already done for night time soaps. You know: throw out the usual story motors and franchise plots. My heroine doesn't kickbox demons every week. She's not even against evil, necessarily. And yet she's living half in a netherworld where supernatural critters are interested in her. It makes it a hell of a lot harder to generate stories, but I think the stories might be fresher. We'll see what our network people think in a month or two, when I turn the results in.

quick question: what makes a strong tv sample script and what makes a weak one?

thanks

Is there any chance we will be able to see a script from the series at some point?

By Blogger aldentre, at 7:35 PM  

Sure! Just as soon as Season One comes out on DVD.

Um, or, Goddess forbid, the series comes unplugged.

To blackpeople's question: I have a LOT of posts on this subject. Check out the various posts on "spec script" and "spec pilot".

HI there, sorry to barge in.... buit need answer ASAP.
I was asked to write a spec pilot for a TV series. How much of a perecentage should I ask if the pilot gets bought? should i ask for an upfront pay? how much would that be?
