This is the same type of report your script would get if you submitted it to an agent, producer, studio or network. It's like a book report, designed to help industry decision makers figure out if it's worth their while to read your material.
With the Coverage Report you get:
Logline (a one to three sentence story description), Comment Summary, Grid Score (a report card on various script elements such as Character Development, Structure, Story Concept, Theme and Dialogue), Synopsis, General Comments, and an Overall Mark of Pass, Consider or Recommend. 3-4 pages in length.
If your material gets a Consider or a Recommend, we will alert our industry contacts. If it gets a Recommend, we will also make phone calls to specific companies which are looking for your specific material.
In addition, you'll also receive our exclusive HLS Ten Question Screenplay Reader's Checklist. No other company offers this!
Plus you'll also receive a FREE download of our Bonus Writing Tools™ valued at $200! You can't lose.
$149.00 ( U.S.$) Screenplay
$99.00 ( U.S.$) Screenplay Resubmission Discount (DOES NOT INCLUDE SYNOPSIS).
* 2 week turnaround for screenplays. Clock starts once we receive materials and payment (If paying by check, it must clear our bank first).
Regarding the resubmission price, if your script gets a consider and we need to send it out to companies, we will need a synopsis. In this case, we will use the synopsis that was supplied with the draft that you sent to us initially. But if the storyline has changed a lot and we need to update it, we will need to charge an extra $50 to have a new synopsis written. We will contact you prior to charging you this fee to get your approval.

"As a writer of novels and screenplays, I found Howard Meibach's Hollywoodlitsales.com a great place to get intelligent, well-thought-out coverage. Experienced professional eyes that zero in on a manuscript's strengths and weaknesses that can only help the writer's entrance into the Hollywood system."
