I really liked this.

Not sure what to make of the discrepancy between the positive critical reviews on RT and the "viewer" ratings, but I can see where if one were expecting an action/thriller type...

Re: Bring yourself to your scripts

The above and what sc111 and others are echoing about "write what you know" reminds me of this, in a BAFTA series lecture from 2013, featuring writer Tony Gilroy:

"... There is one thing that you...

Re: Franklin Leonard

So, in other words, I was correct? :)

Do you use the BL, JoeNYC?

My point in this thread, is that at least one agency has two different protocols for coverage giving -- and one is for all other...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Re: Franklin Leonard

The transparency is that the writer knows who is reading their script. And they can research that manager/company's taste/other produced work.
