Yes, Scriptapalooza TV is an international competition, we accept scripts from all over the world.
When you order feedback, you will get: Logline, Synopsis (of the entire script), and 4 to 5 pages of notes.
Your feedback will include detailed notes on:
- General Notes
We prefer you submit spec scripts of current TV shows. That is the industry standard.
Well, considering if you write both the story and the script for a network episodic, you can receive as much as $18,160. One hour episodics are $26,710. (please refer to the WGA website for current schedule of minimum payment) We'd say it was worth checking out. And besides, writing is writing, if you can follow a format and write a screenplay, you can do the same with TV.
You can submit an original concept for a series (pilot) or a spec script on an existing show (one hour program or sitcom). We give the writer a choice in sending either one or both.
One hour drama - Hawaii Five-O, Ozark and The Blacklist.
Sitcom - Modern Family, Big Bang Theory and The Connors.
Reality Show - The Bachelor, Project Runway and Real Housewives.
Yes, we do accept reality shows.
We are letting the writer decide because he/she might have a great idea for a pilot but no spec scripts on an existing show or vice-versa. We are creating more opportunities without leaving anyone out.
Yes, but a separate fee and entry form must be sent in for each.
