At the heart of any web series or TV drama is a GREAT screenplay. Developing your screenplay can be an exhausting, lonely endeavour. Your friend, spouse or writing group mates have probably all read your script and given you feedback – mostly positive to be sure- but until you get a third party professional to cover your work, your script is NOT ready to shop around. Professional script consultancy ensures your project reaches its full potential and passes the ‘first ten pages’ test – whether you’re shopping an original tv pilot, submitting a web series show-bible for funding, or sending out spec scripts to be considered for a writers’ room, you need coverage.

Vanessa King, Raindance’s TV script consultant is an expert script doctor and accomplished screenwriter. Start with a FREE consultation on Skype…and go from there. No matter where in the world you’re located. To set up your consultation with Vanessa, please email: info@raindancecanada.com
