Q. An agent wants to read our work. We are sending a spec script as well as an original pilot. What we should submit with our pilot? A treatment? A summary?
If you're confident of the pilot, just send that. I would never send a summary of a script. Summaries just never read very well.
If you're trying to set up a TV series -- as opposed to showing people a writing sample -- then you could conceivablly send along a pitch document for the whole series. This should be short -- five pages-ish -- with lots of story springboards to show that the pilot isn't a fluke. But where I have a pilot to show, I would show just the pilot, and then see if they ask for a pitch doc.
