Maximum Z Summer ’22 Script Showcase

The word was given, and the writing community responded. In force.

114 members of it, to be exact.

I wanted to give writers the opportunity to promote their scripts in one convenient and easily accessible location. This is their chance to shine a spotlight on their work and tell the world “Hey, check it out!”

More than a few scripts strike your fancy? Each writer’s email is RIGHT THERE for you to get in touch with them and ask to take a look (and feel free to mention that you read about it here).

The following is a list of 70 screenplays and 44 television scripts covering a vast range of genres. There really is something in here for just about everybody.

A huge thanks to each and every one of you who sent in their script’s info. This list simply could not exist without your participation.

So peruse to your heart’s content and enjoy.

Hey writers!! T- minus…

That’s how long until the great unveiling of the Maximum Z Summer ’22 Script Showcase (June 24th, with a deadline of the 22nd, so mark those calendars!)

As of this writing, 51 screenplays (including several shorts) and 35 TV pilots have been submitted. As you’d expect with this large a collection, a wide variety of genres is represented.

I’ve been asked more than a few times why I’m doing this, what benefit I get, and who’s going to see it.

The first two are easy. I do this because I think it’s great to promote the work of other writers. I’m not asking for any kind of fee or “I did this for you, so now you can do this for me”-type scenarios.

(I will, however, humbly ask that you check out my book to consider for purchasing. Link over there to your right –>>)

As for who’s going to see it…that’s a little tougher to say.

It really comes down to how many people promote it. I do that as much as I can on a few social media platforms, and if your script is included in the list, highly recommend you do the same. Nothing wrong with tooting one’s own horn. The more eyes we can get on this thing, the more interest it can generate.

Also once again- if any of the scripts really grabs you or sounds like something you think you’d be interested in reading, CONTACT THE WRITER!! I’ve done that for a few, and the writers were more than happy to send their script.

So for those who might have missed it, here’s how it works.

Send the following info here with the subject ‘Maximum Z Summer ’22 Script Showcase’:

Film or TV?

Title

Author

Genre(s)

Logline

Awards (if any, and a limit of 5)

Your email

DO NOT SEND THE SCRIPT!!

ONLY 1 SCRIPT PER PERSON

Also – short scripts are more than welcome, and it’s preferred for TV writers to send in original material, rather than scripts for pre-existing shows.

As mentioned before, the deadline for sending in is Wednesday, June 22nd, with the final list posted on Friday, June 24th, so don’t put it off until the last minute.

Still plenty of spaces available.

Calling all writers of film & television!!

As has been written about many a time on this platform, I’m a huge supporter of helping writers out when I can, especially when it comes to promoting their own material.

Which is why a few years ago I created The Maximum Z Script Showcase; a twice-a-year post that lists film and television spec scripts writers have sent in with the intention of letting the rest of the world know about them. Each listing includes the basic information about each script (genre, logline, awards, etc.), as well as the writer’s email in case it piques your interest and you’d like to contact them about reading it.

So I’m proud to announce that the door is now open to submit your script to the Summer ’22 edition, slated to post on Friday, June 24th.

Interested in having yours included? Here’s all you need to do:

Email the following info about your script with the subject “Maximum Z Summer ’22 Script Showcase” here:

-Film or TV?

-Title

-Author(s)

-Genre(s)

-Logline

-Awards (if applicable) – 5 at the most

-your email

And that’s it.

Two VERY important details to keep in mind:

-DO NOT SEND THE SCRIPT!!!

Just the info listed above. Nothing else.

-and-

ONLY ONE SCRIPT PER PERSON. No exceptions.

New scripts are highly encouraged, but it’s still okay to send in one that’s been featured in a previous edition.

Submissions will be accepted until Thursday, June 23rd. After that and you’re out of luck.

Just a few days left!

Hey, you amazing writer of screen or television, you.

Got a spec script you want to put in the spotlight?

Well, your chance to do exactly that is RIGHT NOW.

Friday, 29 October will see the posting of the Maximum Z Autumn ’21 Script Showcase, and it’ll feature a wide variety of screenplays and TV scripts, complete with the vital details for each, along with the contact info in case something strikes your fancy and you want to contact the writer about reading it.

And your script could be one of them.

Here’s how it works.

Using the subject line “Maximum Z Autumn ’21 Script Showcase’, email the following info about your script here.

Film or TV

Title

Author

Genre

Logline

Awards (if applicable, and limit it to 5)

Your email

And that’s it.

DO NOT SEND THE SCRIPT!

and

ONLY ONE SCRIPT PER WRITER.

The deadline for sending is Thursday 28 October, so the clock is a-tickin’.

Send it along post haste so you don’t regret missing out on this amazing opportunity!

Maximum Z Script Showcase – Summer ’21 edition

Any screenwriter who’s done their homework can tell you there are plenty of platforms and websites out there offering up the opportunity to put scripts on display.

Granted, I know this little operation of mine isn’t the biggest or the most well-known, but I also know how frustrating it can be when you’ve got a script you’re really proud of and want to let the rest of the world know about it.

I’m a big believer in supporting the writing community, and wanted to do what I could to offer up that same opportunity to any and all interested parties.

“Send me the vital details for your script, and I’ll post ’em!” I announced.

And 167 of you did exactly that.

What you will find below is a virtual treasure trove of material.

Film and TV scripts covering a vast spectrum of genres, many with accompanying awards and accolades.

But the most important part is that each and every one is available for you to read – courtesy of the writer’s email being included.

Something grabs your attention, makes you think “I’d like to read that.”? All you have to do is contact the writer and ask. Maybe they’ll want to do a swap.

This is networking and establishing professional relationships at their finest.

So settle in and start perusing. Hope you find something you like.

(And as long as I’ve got your attention, feel free to hit the ‘like’ button, and even take it one step further and start following this blog.)
