2015 Spec Scriptacular Feedback

More updates from the recent 2015 Scriptacular Contest

I had a great meeting with TVWriter about what to do after winning first place in the Spec Scriptacular and, as was expected, the first thing was to get my Spec Script in the hands of my Agent so it could be circulated.  The only problem with that is that I don’t have an agent.  I’ll add that to my list of things to do.  In the meantime I did reach out to 3 Arts Entertainment and got to speak with David Miner’s assistant who said they’d be interested in reading it but only if it came through representation.  She was extremely kind and helpful, so if she ever reads this “THANK YOU”.

Here’s what the judges had to say…

“Your episode of TUKS finished 1st in the sitcom category.

The judges were blown away by what you did here. One of them said it succinctly: “This has everything. Humor. Fits the show. Good story. Good pacing.”

Okay, so you didn’t get a series of 10s. Nobody ever does. It’s all a matter of degree. In theory, every area we put a scored down is one you could have polished a little more, but I can’t think of how, or how anything you did further could ever even be noticed.

So, although I’d like to be able to add to find something to complain about, I can’t. This was the kind of script every showrunner hopes to get from a member of his or her staff. Hell, it’s the kind of script every showrunner hopes to write.”

Anyone know a good agent?

I want to thank to Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and their entire team for creating amazing characters and a world that was so fun to write about and to Ellie Kemper, Titus Burgess, Carol Kane, Jane Krakowski, and the entire cast and crew for bringing it to life so brilliantly.  It was so much FUN to write.
