I have read a lot of screenwriting books, production books, directed/produced (short film) etc. So, my education and experience in screenwriting is in the typical feature or short film style. After writing two and producing one short screenplay I tried to move on to a feature length script. I found I was done in about 55 pages (hour long drama length). This led me to believe I should write TV drama (I am still working on it). Then I noticed that Amazon Studios would accept unsolicited online submissions. Aha, this gave me some hope that I could get lucky. Unfortunately, at the time, Amazon was only looking for children's shows and sitcoms -- neither one of which I particularly gravitated to. I decided to write a half-hour comedy (sitcom) and submit it to Amazon. I submitted it in my old familiar format of a screenplay including the act breaks found in TV scripts. Wrote another sitcom and submitted it in the same format. Then I read somewhere that TV shows are formatted differently. So, I reformatted my script (easy, a couple of clicks) and resubmitted it. Then I actually read the submission guidelines for Amazon Studios and realized that my comedies were one camera comedies and the format is screenplay with act breaks -- my original format. Change it back and resubmit. Reading sitcom scripts has also helped me. However, I noticed that the format can vary, especially with some of the action and also character introductions. For example: I have seen character introductions that were written in bold lower case letters, all letters capitalized, or caps underlined (multi-camera format). I guess I get to choose between bold lower case or all caps (one camera). Also, I have learned some sitcom structure: First problem, first solution, act break, second problem, second solution, second act break, resolve (obviously, not set in stone). Page count: It looks like the average page count for sitcoms is 32-40 pages. My first sitcom's first draft was 22 pages (a minute a page right?) oops! More like 30-40 seconds a page. Damn time constraints. I did some word counts on a few sitcom scripts and it seems to be around 5,500-6,500. On the bright side, I think I have good ideas for sitcoms and I think that I write good dialogue, include a B story, etc. But, learning this stuff can be a humbling experience. Any thoughts on sitcom writing?
