Default Who is accepting Sci-Fi Comedy Screenplays?

Hi - I've been trying to market my Sci-Fi Comedy script and I haven't had any luck so far. I know that Sci-Fi in general is a tough sell, and I've done extensive research on productions companies, etc. but they usually just mention Comedy, and when I do send out my query letter they say "Well, not that type of comedy."

If anyone could point me in the right direction in terms of companies or managers who are specifically searching for this specific genre it would be greatly appreciated.

How about Industry Entertainment &/or 21 Laps? They set up Neighborhood Watch in 9/08.

Or Benderspink? They set up Pet Robots in 11/08.

Or Working Title &/or Big Talk Productions? They set up Paul in 11/08.

Hi - Thank you very much for below production companies I will definately send them a query.

I sent Benderspink four very marketable script ideas, and they never got back to me...so I'm going to exclude them in the future.

Again, thanks for your help.

Is your script Good to Great?

I know of four production companies seeking High Concept Sci-Fi, and two who are seeking Sci-Fi Comedies.

Only if the request is backed by good to great material. I've tossed too many names out in public before only to get backlash on my own reputation.

Hi Screenquery - Actually I was going to use your service today, but I noticed that you won't be open till August 1st. It gave me more time to write.

Personally, I think my Sci-Fi comedy is unique and pretty funny, but that's just my opinion. It made a few of my friends laugh out loud, so I took that as a compliment.

My Sci-Fi/Thriller is high concept and it dwells with issues that haven't been touched upon in films, so I think its unique. With that being said, if you know of any particular companies that are just currently seeking that genre, you could shoot me a pm, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for offering your service I do have a few reads in the works, but I'd like to increase my chances!
