Title: TV pilot scripts for download (update)
Post by: CC on April 14, 2009, 04:01 PM
Ran across this site from screenwriter John August's blog (johnaugust.com)

-- TV pilot scripts for anyone interested in TV writing. You can download them as well. Only the first episode is listed, but it's great to get a feel for formatting and how a TV script "looks," and how that is translated to screen.

Tons there -- Gossip Girls, the O.C., Kings, Lost, Friday Night Lights, Freaks and Geeks.

This is awesome.  I just finished a workshop with Lee Goldberg who is a screenwriter for Monk and he broke down how to decipher and interpret a script before you pitch your own.  Lots of good info that can also apply to novel writing.

Thanks for the link!  I wondered where to track some down!........C
