Detroit Breakdown (TV pilot script)

I recently adapted my unpublished novel “Sins of Iniquity” into a television series, writing the pilot episode and bible for the show. And, of course, I’m hitting the market with it. One of the channels of marketing that I’m using is InkTip.

InkTip allows writers to load a script, synopsis, logline and resume then, in turn, gives access to producers. It has proven useful for many writers. So, on top of the query process, which can be daunting, I uploaded the pilot script and synopsis to InkTip. This morning, I received a email praising the script. Hopefully, it will turn into a deal. Here’s a portion of that email:

Hi Gary,

I just finished reading your pilot script, Detroit Breakdown. I absolutely love it!!! Really strong and interesting writing.

I started to read just the first few pages, but could not stop reading. Your dialogue feels real and it’s smart. I love the pace of the show and all the characters are three dimensional and interesting. DONNA and TRIXIE GOLDMAN are my favorite, love them both. DONNA’s dialogue and her character made me laugh out loud. I love her already.

Selling a screenplay is a long, and sometimes, frustrating process. It’s filled with ups and downs and sideways and corkscrews. One must have an iron stomach for such a career. That being said, I’m not hanging my hat on the email, but it’s always nice to receive such enthusiastic feedback about something that you’ve worked so hard on writing.

Four seasons are mapped out, thus far, and I’m currently writing episode two, as well as beefing the outline. I haven’t given up on the novel, though. It’s in the middle of a rewrite, but the meat of the book is there. It’ll be a race to see which comes to light first.

Producers that utilize the services of InkTip and are interested in viewing the script and synopsis can follow this link:

Who knows? Maybe this will be the one. Maybe you’ll be the one.
