Quoted from DustinBowcot


It shouldn't be reads that concern you. You should only be concerned about sales. Writing something in the hope of reads on a forum seems pretty sad to me. You'd be better of writing novels. At least you can self-publish.

You end up fixing things based on comments from readers here for nothing. If the idea is a good one, then pitch it to people that actually care. If they want changes then you have far more incentive to make them.


The probability of NBC rebooting Family Ties with that specific, unsolicited, unrepresented script is roughly the same as being struck by lightning while carrying a winning lottery ticket. But the initial writing and the revision were useful practice.

In the case of Round One here, just planning on posting a link to the script I had before I performed an all-the-important-parts-ectomy to get it down to five pages.


Feature-length scripts:
Who Wants to Be a Princess? (Family)
Glass House (Horror anthology)

TV pilots:
"Kord" (Fantasy)
"Mal Suerte" (Superhero)

Additional scripts are listed here.

They may not want to make yours... but if you can prove that you can write for the show then maybe they have a reboot planned. I've never seen it. I have no idea what it is and I can't be bothered to Google it. You can also use it to prove that you can do reboots. Maybe not Family Ties... maybe they have another show in mind.

HA!  I was joking about the Title and Logline...although I will change it once it's revealed to be mine.

How funny wuold that be...all of a sudden, a script has a completely new Title and Logline?  Funny!

People ready to start guessing? It looks like everyone is focused on round 2 and round 1 is a distant memory, and Sean did say we could.

I really want to throw mine out there...

You can guess whenever you want, we just can't confirm or deny until the reveal.

Never know what you’ll get — my gut says Jeff, but it could be a wild card like Stevie
Dr Schnederly - this has Paul written all over it
Virtual Vengeance Container - could be Warren or Rene
Melt - because it was over the limit and Zack was mentioning how much he had to cut, I’m going with Zack
Need to think about some of these other ones.


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

Tucker & Doctor Daleman vs. Crazy
or I'm being watched - Warren
Where Did He Touch You? - Kham
Melt – Kevin
Bugs-Rene
Treatment-John

Never know what you'll get – Jeff
Bobble-ageddon- Stevie
Somehow I think I could have mixed up the last two.

Not sure if Pale Yellow is in but I'd go with Sprung there.
Libby for 'Just Stop' but then there's that Hayley Chambers character. Suspicious.

You may be right about Melt.

I think Scar must have written Bugs, then.

Can't take credit for Melt. Dena did not participate. I don't think Rick did Melt, his comments were too enthusiastic. I think he just genuinely really liked it.
