This is the first in a series of post by clients who have used my script coverage service. This is a useful post written by screenwriter Adele Smaill… Take it away Adele…
I wrote the episode where ‘Alfie’ told ‘Kat’ he loved her, for the first time in EastEnders (all the way back in June 2003).
So, the big questions is – Which is better? To have the story written up as a script or screenplay (by a pro scriptwriter like me?) Or is it better to have the story written as a book by a professional ghost writer service?
Hey, as a UK script consultant and BAFTA shortlisted script writer for hire I get a surprising amount of emails from people with no industry experience who have decide that their idea, script or life story would make a great series on Netflix and that all they need to do is find a way of getting that idea, script or life story in front of the bigwigs at Netflix (or Amazon or the BBC). So, that they can agree what a fab story it is, while they hand over bundles of cash to get it made.
