US Prodco Seeking High School Comedy Features (REPOST)

Nov. 22, 2022
By: ISA Verified Industry Pro

(REPOST) ISA Verified Pro - US Production company seeking American high school comedies for mainstream network. They produce 4-6 R-Rated high school features a year and are looking for something grounded yet original. Budget $4-8mm.

Tonally, they are looking for projects that are light and have plenty of laugh out loud moments. They are interested in new writers and new voices so are open to interesting and inclusive stories.

Underrepresented sections of society are particularly appealing. Also, experimental storytelling or subverting genre tropes are also welcome.

For tone the following comps should be noted - Easy A, Booksmart, Superbad, The Breakfast Club. For alternative story telling devices, example comps include - Palm Springs, Ruby Sparks, 500 Days of Summer.

Union and non-union writers accepted. Scripts from anywhere in the world will be considered but must be English language. Please submit Logline, Synopsis, and Script.  (In NOTE section please list comps and named talent you see in the lead roles if this is something you have thought about).
Please provide a brief logline of no more than two sentences. Your logline will be the first element our team will use to evaluate your submission. This is your calling card for your script, is it doing its job?

1. What is the central crisis driving the narrative, particularly in the second act?
2. Who is your main character and what is their emotional arc?
3. What is the general setting or tone of the piece?

If you are struggling to encapsulate these elements of your concept, then we recommend submitting your project for a logline review. We encourage you to keep trying new versions of your loglines until you get more attention from producers. Loglines are that important!

Important Note: 
An “ISA Verified Industry Pro” is a respected industry professional/company with the means to fund projects that suit their mandate. They wish to remain private and have entrusted the ISA to vet content to send to them. We will disclose their contact information to you when your script has passed the first round and is requested by them.
