Working with a producer but I'm sure there are potential drawbacks to how I'm proceeding, being new at this. He wanted me to adapt a novel he had the rights to - and then he wanted me to expand what I'd done and give it more oomph. But I asked about compensation at that point and he said I'd be attached to the show as a writer if we get that far with it. So now I'm waiting to see if he liked the expansion. Am I proceeding properly? I also came up with storylines for Season 2, and ideas for Season 3. But no scripts have been written yet. I offered to write the pilot. At what point do I need a contract? I submitted one completed TV pilot to a screenwriting competition recently, this one is my own. I was told 65 pages for an hour-long.
