Default Disney Channel Movie Specs?

Anyone know where I can find the specs for a Disney Channel movie? Would a finished script have to go through an agent to them or to a production company? Also, where can I find contact info for the Disney Channel?

Thank you.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "specs for a Disney Channel movie"?

Don't know what you mean by the "specs" for the Disney Channel. But you do need to use either an agent, manager or production company to get in any Disney door. They don't deal directly with writers -- at least nonproduced ones.

Thank you, Boski and others, for your replies.

I really shouldn't have used the word "specs" coz of course it got confused with "spec" (script). Silly me. What I really meant was:

1. What script format requirements does the Disney Channel have for movies (I've written for feature films -- unsold -- but not TV)?
2. What current story requirements do they have -- things they want in a story, things to avoid, types of story they're looking for, and so on.
3. How to get the script read by DC?

Thanks for any further insight you can share.

Oh man, Boski - I love Marc Lorber. He's an incredibly nice guy. And that's the email addy I have for him too.

When I view the Disney Channel TV material I see cartoon shows, kids games/ education shows, and movies starring tweeners (Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan in the past, and newer stars now).

Is the Disney channel interested in family movies for just kids (6-10)?

No intended competition here, but what is a great contact for Disney Channel queries? I tried Buena Vista Motion Picture Group, but got nowhere in that big bureacracy of an organization.

Thanks.

The best contact for Disney Channel and/or Disney Toon Studios is an agent or producer who already deals with someone there.

You won't get anywhere cold calling / sending unsolicited queries.

You can also try one of the prodcos with which the Disney Channel frequently works. Just about everything they do these days is produced by Brookwell-McNamara Entertainment.

I've tried querying to Brookwell, they don't even bother to reply to turn me down.

I know that Marc Lorber at Barracuda is looking for Disney Channel.
