WHAT WILL ELEPHANT BUCKS DO FOR YOU?


I’ve read a million spec scripts in my years as a staff writer and producer on eleven different network TV sitcoms. Many of the spec sitcom scripts floating around Hollywood right this minute, bound in glossy covers that say “CAA” or “ICM” on the front, and sitting in piles on the desks of the top producers and executives at Warner Brothers, Disney, Universal, Sony, and Fox, are very, very good scripts indeed. And that’s bad news for you. Because it means you have a mountain of really tough competition out there already!

I’m sure that with time and trial, you are smart enough and talented enough to figure out how to write a perfectly acceptable spec episode of The Office all by yourself, with no help from me.

But can you afford to take the time? Are you prepared to endure the trial?

Or would you rather save the time, skip the trial, and start writing great spec sitcom scripts right now?

Elephant Bucks tells you which network TV sitcoms to spec. There are a dozen or more sitcoms on the air this season. Which of those sitcoms is the perfect sitcom for you to spec? There is an answer!

Elephant Bucks tells you how to find the perfect story for your spec sitcom script. You can’t just type up 45 pages of jokes, you know. To make your spec sitcom script stand out from the mountain of competition that’s already out there, you’re going to need a great story! I’ll show you, step-by-step, how to create that great story! All the clues are right in front of you!

Elephant Bucks tells you how to structure your spec sitcom script. There are Seven Plot Elements that you’ll need in every sitcom script that you ever write. Do you know what these Seven Plot Elements are? I’ll clue you in. With the Seven Plot Elements properly in place, your spec script will work every time! It will sing! It will be better than the other guy’s!

Elephant Bucks
tells you how to write brilliant, clever dialogue and scenes. Whether you’re already convinced that you are the funniest guy or gal on the block, or, and much more likely, you’re understandably worried about not being funny enough, I will show you how to unleash the comedy genius inside of you, and how to create rich, compelling, and yes, hilarious dialogue and scenes in your spec sitcom scripts. Taught to me by one of the savviest comedy minds in the business, I have a proven method for writing fresh and delightful scenes that are always funny and always work! This method has never failed me!

I was Co-Executive Producer of the hit sitcom, Coach, which ran on the ABC-TV network from 1989-1996. I produced the pilot episode of Coach, again with series creator Barry Kemp, and produced and wrote that series for the first three seasons.

I was a writer, Consulting Producer, and Co-Executive Producer on Sabrina – The Teenage Witch, which ran on the ABC network from 1996-2000. (The series moved to the WB network after that.) I also directed three episodes of that hit series.

While teaching some graduate level courses on TV sitcom writing at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, I was encouraged by the head of the screenwriting program there to do a book about sitcom writing.

I was also encouraged to do a sitcom writing book by my good friend and occasional collaborator, Blake Snyder, who has sold a number of spec screenplays, and wrote Save the Cat, a wonderful book on writing for the movies.
