Default Very enthusiastic response to query...

So I sent a query out to one studio and one production company. Both called me up wanting the script 'asap'. The guy at the studio is a creative exec, the guy at the production company is head of development. I have a name 'interested'; well, his agent was kinda interested, but would only look into it properly if there was a production company or studio attached.

I sent the script Monday lunchtime. It is now nearly Friday lunchtime. When should I expect a response? Do these people usually read their scripts on the weekends? When should I start to worry?

Yes, weekend. Always worry.

Why only two places? If your logline is killer and you're getting requests, start firing away.

AB: I agree with Levenger. If you've gotten that good a response already, go nuts and query other buyers. But also query agents and managers, because you'll ultimately need a rep.
As for timing, although most reading takes place on the weekends, everybody has a big stack of stuff that's ahead of you in the food chain, so be patient. For now, just focus on the fact that what you have is rining bells and go ring more.
But congrats, because concept is king.
