This site will be of plenty of interest to TV fans, but fundamentally it's for people who want to take their love of TV and transform it into something more practical: actually creating telly that people want to see.

These scripts are here because the only way to learn how to write a TV script is to read A LOT of other TV scripts, and there aren't many places you can do that.

So here you can study scripts for existing shows, some of your old favourites, and many that never even made it to air. Figure out what makes an episode work, how to format that spec, why a pilot failed and how to write in four, five or six acts.

And when you've figured it all out and got your show on air - send me your scripts!

Help keep this site updated

I love running this site and sharing the scripts I obtain with other writers and fans. However, scripts are not always easy to get hold of (especially when you live five and a half thousand miles away from L.A.). So I am asking; if you would like to contribute - anonymously or otherwise - to a site that has been called "an absolute gold mine" (John August) and "a great site" (Ellen Sandler) then please send any scripts you may have for upcoming or classic shows to blog@leethomson.com. I promise not to post scripts for upcoming pilots until the show has aired, and anyone who sends me anything will of course have my undying gratitude.
