Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Barry John Terblanche

Checked it out... Looks good. Thanks for sharing.

This is brilliant to hear as I've been developing a sci-fi tv series with a fellow writer - excellent ! Thanks for posting this info. Dean

I checked it out... This clause bothers me:- Selected writers will be offered an if/come agreement to work with Skydance to develop their project further. If you choose to enter into the agreement with Skydance TV, Skydance will have the rights to develop, shop, and produce your project for the duration of the deal, and you will be paid an initial sum of US$3,500.

If Skydance solicits a script from the writer during the duration of the agreement, script fees will be in accordance with the then-current WGA scale. As the project continues forward, the writer shall also receive additional credits and royalties provided the writer stay engaged.

From my looking-up the WGA rates... A 60Min T.V Pilot will get you R38,000

I guess one needs to ask your self... What is the (my) value of my pilot/bible?

Erick Freitas

Nice! This is awesome, thanks.

Barry John Terblanche The 3500 is basically an option, not your final payment should it get made. As options go these days, that is actually quite generous.

Barry John Terblanche

Yeah, as per my post. Another $38,000 on sale of the script.
