SELL YOUR TV OR MOVIE SCRIPT TO AMAZON

Amazon is now producing sitcoms and children’s TV for their “Instant Video” service on the web. If you have a script, you can submit it and get an answer within 45 days. That’s a far cry from the runaround most writers get when pitching scripts.  Hooray for the digital age.

To submit your script, head to Studios.Amazon.com. Studios, launched in 2010, has received 7,000 scripts so far, and has 15 movie projects under development. The TV venture is new.

If your TV script is chosen for development, you’ll get $10,000. If it gets distributed on Amazon Instant Video, you get $55,000 plus five percent of royalties on toy and T-shirt sales. They also offer $33,000 for various writing assignments, and contests with prizes of $12,000.
