Nothing compares to a fresh set of eyes on your script before a rewrite!
Whether you’re a first-time writer or a seasoned veteran, coverage is one of the most important steps in preparing your project for the market, and getting a professional set of eyes on your work is crucial before you share it with the world. When submitting your work via the Launch Pad Coverage, not only will you receive invaluable feedback on your work from a team of professional readers, but you’ll also become eligible for our TB Recommends program. Our Recommends program works to identify scripts that receive a "Recommend" rating on their coverage and introduce the writer to the agents, managers, executives, producers and publishers who matter. While there is no obligation to be part of the Recommends program, previous participants have seen their recommended scripts set up with Warner Bros., Appian Way, Scott Free, Fox, Amazon, CBS, Anonymous Content, UCP and Paramount amongst others, and have signed with places such as CAA, WME, ICM, UTA, ESA, Paradigm, Energy Entertainment, Industry Entertainment and Madhouse Entertainment amongst others.
Whether a feature, a pilot, a manuscript or a comic book at some point every writer needs a fresh set of eyes. Why not let our professional readers help?
Our readers have worked for some of the biggest names in film and television, and feature extensive backgrounds in development, writing coverage, and providing feedback to executives and producers, writers and directors. With our readers you’re receiving the same attention, detail and analysis most major studios and networks would receive. Why trust coverage from readers who’ve never worked in the industry, when you can get an industry perspective first?
Our coverage program also features our TB Recommends program, which identifies writers and scripts thatreceive a recommend, and introduces them to Hollywood showcasing their work directly to those who matter. Previous writers identified in this program have seen their recommended scripts set up with Warner Bros., Appian Way, Scott Free, Fox and Amazon amongst others, and have signed with places such as CAA, WME, ICM, Energy, Industry, Madhouse Entertainment, and several more.
Every script that receives a “Recommend” on eligible coverage will be invited to take part in our TB Recommends program, which works with writers to showcase their work to our 25,000 industry professionals via newsletters, press announcements, meetings and one on one introductions to those who can help start your career.
