ABOUT THE SCRIPT PIPELINE WORKSHOP
Established in 1999, the Script Pipeline Workshop is one of the longest-running notes services in the industry, offering feedback on screenplays, pilots, and pitches for film and television. All readers are comprised of our in-house development team and have a range of 5-20 years experience in reading screenplays and pilots. Hundreds of writers each year, from beginners to professionals, benefit from the expertise of this small, seasoned group of execs, many of whom are active writers and producers themselves.
Any genre or format accepted. We review everything from partially completed scripts to production-ready final drafts. Writers may also request a critique on supplemental materials (such as a TV show bible, synopsis, or logline), as well as follow up with their reader with additional questions on the feedback.
Together with our competitions, the Workshop is another outlet to funnel upper-echelon projects to an array of industry contacts and shepherd scripts into production.
