Default Turnaround Time On Benderspink?

Instead of sitting around waiting for a contract to be signed on another script, I've been sending out a homosexual drama out to quite a few places.

I was really excited when Benderspink requested a copy, and mailed it 9/11. What is the typical time for their response?

Here's my experience from August.

I e-queried them on August 9th. Later that day I got permission to send it in. It was in the mail the next day. I heard back from them on Aug. 21st...they read it but passed. So, I'd say you're ripe for hearing something soon. Good luck.

I e-queried them about 3 months ago. They got back to me in a day or two - said to send it. I did. About two weeks later they emailed me, said they liked it and could I send them any more. I sent them three scripts - ignoring advice from people on DD who said to send one or two. Then I waited about 5 or 6 weeks and they passed on everything.

It would be interesting to know if anybody has actually sold them anything. They certainly read a lot of scripts.

Two days for mine to be read after emailing them a copy.

A one day rejection on an e-query that read:
'Thank you for your query. At this time we are not requesting a copy of
your screenplay.'
Is that just a nice way to say 'Forget it' or should I try again in a few months?
At least they replied...

That's a stock reply. I got the exact same reply on another script even after they read my previous script. Keep querying them with other scripts...if they like the query they'll request the script.

Unfortunately that means they don't want to read your screenplay, no time limit.

I also had a two day turn around. Is there anyone who doesn't get a read from these guys?

Maybe they request everything under the sun to get a release for everything under the sun.

Or...we're all great at queries, but fail to deliver.

As if there was a chance.

I had a script request from them on Aug. 7. I sent the script out the next day (snail mail). I haven't heard back from them.

Those who got responses, did they send an email? Call? I'm starting to wonder if I should call, considering most of everyone got a reply within a few days.

I read on another message board that their turnaround time was 3 months.
