Good luck Dalt. What genre is your script?

I've just had my second review back. After the highs of a 7 (yeah, I know!), comes a lowly 5.

Still, just made the Real Time top list with the average score. Take that reviewer.

Now for some word play so I can include 'featured on the top list on the Black List' in my query letter.

Pabloamigo: Good luck and thanks for the reminder. My new script made the top lists but with a lower score than I'd prefer. I've just revised it and I'm thinking it's quite a bit better. I'll include the top list thing in a query and see what happens. Never mentioned it before. Buena suerte!

When three man-hating feminist roommates fail to pay their rent on time, their landlord rents a spare room in their house to an oafish young man who threatens to disrupt their "ladies only" lifestyle.

Strength:
The plot for LADIES ONLY was clearly and concisely laid out. There is no confusion about what the pilot and series would be about. Freya and Danielle will butt heads with Greg, and Jenine will slowly start to fall in love with him. The strongest aspects of this pilot are the contents of each act as well as each smooth transition between them.

I just wanted to say that I read this script by Sky777 before it went to the Black List, and I think it has potential. The author presented it as a TV pilot, but I think it has appealing elements that could be expanded into a feature. I found myself laughing out loud in places. But you have to enjoy character satire to appreciate this work.

Here goes...

Pilot Logline

Just after I posted that I queried some fairly reputable agents and got three read requests.

Whether including a line about being on the top list swayed them or not I dont know, but I'm sure it didn't hurt.

The Frequency- hour long TV pilot

Series Logline
A misfit genius and a farm girl join forces with a network of counter-conspiracy theorists and uncover a vast underground organization manipulating electromagnetic frequencies in an attempt to take over the world.

Pilot Logline
After losing her family in a devastating storm, a young woman joins a misfit genius on a conspiracy-filled journey to uncover the truth about the mysterious force that caused the unusual storm.

The script made the Top Uploaded Pilots and Top Serialized.


Strengths:
"THE FREQUENCY taps into the fear mongering universe in an interesting, and mostly accessible, way. Perhaps most importantly, the pilot feels like it has legs. It sets up a basic premise that one can imagine playing out over time. The characters are likable, heightened enough to hold our attention, and well-crafted enough to read as genuine. Interesting secondary roles pepper the landscape and provide access to a deeper plot."

I just uploaded a new-and-improved draft. https://www.blcklst.com/members/scripts/view/16207

Gracias, pablo-amigo!
I sent 5 and got one request right away, too. I'll keep at it. I honestly haven't queried much over the last few years. May the force be with you!

Hi, folks! New guy around these parts. Not sure if this will work, but nonetheless, putting it out there...

I have two scripts up on the BL right now and I'd love some feedback/ratings.

Killers Anonymous
Action/Thriller
Logline: An ex-killer, in a support group for ex-assassins, falls off "the wagon" and has to enlist his fellow ex-killers to stop a sadistic boss and save their mentor.
https://blcklst.com/members/scripts/view/17395

Hunter Lake
Horror/Comedy
Logline: After their estranged father dies, a brother and sister discover his terrible secret: their father was a serial killer. As they try to cover up his crimes, they find out just how deep family ties go.
