Turn your feature screenplay into a TV pilot using these 7 steps

Most professional writers will tell you not to chase the marketplace. But if you’re working with an agent or manager, they will urge you to write what is currently on trend. The days of selling spec features are long gone. Yes, it does still happen, but it’s not reasonable to plan on it happening. Today, it’s all about television: network, cable, but mostly streaming.  And that’s a very good thing for writers.

Why you should be writing a TV period pilot… like now
