Writing the Killer Treatment: Selling Your Story Without a Script Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writers have to understand and develop the elements that make a great script before writing the script itself. Halperin demonstrates how treatments can be effective, taking writers through the entire process in a variety of genres including originals, adaptations, movies-of-the-week, miniseries, sitcoms and soap operas.

Book News Annotation:

Halperin, a former executive story consultant for 20th Century Fox Television, offers advice on how to write a "treatment," the industry term for the summary of a television or movie script that is often used to determine whether to move forward with a project or not. After presenting general information on writing treatments, he looks at the particular examples of episodic television and daytime serials.
