3) More Producers Seeking Screenplays and Writers

The Next Preferred Deadline is July 27th.

Below are more companies seeking scripts, which are available in this week’s Preferred Newsletter (without contact information/credits). To receive the information, the cost is $50 for a four-month subscription (half price if you have a script on the site!).

For more information about the Preferred Newsletter go here:

Company A

We are looking for completed feature-length music-driven scripts. The script does not have to be a musical but it should focus on the music industry or a musician. We are open to most styles of music where the story takes place from the 1970s to the present except for hip hop and dance/electronic music. If the script is a biopic, then please indicate if the life rights are available in the message space. 
Budget will not exceed $7 million. Both WGA and Non-WGA writers may submit.

For more information on gaining access to this lead, please see

Company B

We are looking for completed feature-length high-concept, low-budget, rated-R comedy scripts with younger lead roles. This must be a script that is currently not on the site.  We are looking for low-brow scripts in the vein of “Sex Drive” or “American Pie.” The script must be rated-R. We are not looking for an overly dramatic or sophisticated comedy. Young protagonists only – late high school aged to early 20s (no scripts about late 20 angst, “The Hangover” would not work). Examples of what would work: “Frat Party,” “Miss March,” “Road Trip.” In other words, Broken Lizard and National Lampoon-styled comedy. Examples that would NOT work: “Meet the Parents,” (not dirty enough), “I Love You, Man” (characters are too old). The bottom line is that the script’s basic premise must have a sharp hook with something different to the story than what we’ve seen. For example, we are NOT looking for another script about a loser going to college and having a frat party without some kind of unique angle (e.g. stuck by lightning, now a woman). By high-concept, we mean that the script should have a sharp hook, be able to be pitched in a short sentence, a title that reveals the premise and thus easily marketed and understood by all when you see the title and the poster (e.g. “Wedding Crashers” or “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”). However, please do not pitch only a tagline that doesn’t reveal the actual story premise.
Budget will not exceed $2 million.   Both WGA and Non-WGA writers may submit.

For more information on gaining access to this lead, please see

Company C

We are looking for completed feature-length character-driven, contemporary drama scripts for adult audiences. The focus is on characters and relationships, in other words, a festival/Sundance type of script. Only contemporary, present-day scripts.
Budget will not exceed $500,000. Both WGA and Non-WGA writers may submit.

For more information on gaining access to this lead, please see

Company D

We are looking for completed feature-length thriller scripts where the majority of the story takes place in three or fewer locations. We prefer stories set in indoor locations/sets like an airplane interior, a bungalow, a police station, hospital, house, etc.
Budget will not exceed $100K. Only non-WGA writers should submit.

For more information on gaining access to this lead, please see

Company E

We are looking for female-driven thriller MOW scripts with the female lead role in her 20s-30s and appropriate for television. These should only be present-day scripts. Since it’s for television, nothing that relies on R-rated content. The lead character must have some inner resolve that is demonstrated through the actions during the conflict. The focus of the story must be the female lead character.
Budget is open but low enough for an MOW. Both WGA and Non-WGA writers may submit.

For more information on gaining access to this lead, please see

Company F

We are looking for registered unscripted TV projects featuring Hispanic characters that will appeal to Hispanic audiences. We prefer raunchy characters and material, i.e. Jersey Shore but for the Latin market. Please note, as it’s unscripted we obviously aren’t looking for completed scripts, but anything you pitch us should be registered with the WGA first.
Budget has yet to be determined. WGA and non-WGA writers may submit.

For more information on gaining access to this lead, please see

Company G

We are looking for completed feature-length scripts or television pilots where the stories are set in Singapore. Please note that we will only consider material where the entire story or series takes place in Singapore, and where Singapore is portrayed in a positive light. Stories featuring multinational and multicultural characters are especially encouraged.
Budget has yet to be determined. WGA and non-WGA writers may submit.

For more information on gaining access to this lead, please see

Company H

We are looking for completed teleplay kid show pilot scripts from Canadian writers. Live action or animated is fine as long as it is targeted for a preschool or up to tween audience. Please include in your synopsis a loose outline of the next episodes and how the series progresses. If we are interested we may request a more detailed outline/treatment of the series arc along with the pilot script.
Budget is open. Both WGC and Non-WGC writers may submit. Canadian writers only at this time.
