So, I finished the first draft of a TV spec script this week. I checked to see if the show even looks at spec scripts (it does) and I got a bunch of scripts off the show to study the style and length, etc. Now what?* The only writing gigs I've gotten before have either been people coming to me, self-publishing, or people with their own agents bringing me in as part of a package deal. My only experience with the slush pile is cartoon selling (and I've done well there in so far as you can). I don't have representation of my own. After the writing part of writing is done, how does the selling part go - at least for US TV? [more inside]

Script format for :30 commercials?I've been asked by a local company to write scripts based upon concepts I've given them for :30 commercial spots to air on local cable. I know it's not a big deal, but since I'm anal about proper format in general, I was wondering what the proper formatting is for this kind of script. Plus I'm simply curious. [more inside]
Can someone point me towards an online version of the screenplay or at least a transcript of Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Thanksverymuch.
Is there a script or a screenplay for Election that isn't the Third Draft that is floating around? It could be free or for purchase -- anything that is correct. Something official would be best, but even a finalized version would be workable. [more inside]
