Here you'll find PDF samples of various scripts written by myself and Lauren Burke. All television scripts are registered with the Writers Guild of America (West). The comic scripts have been published, either online, in print or both.
I'm also an excellent editor/punch-up guy, so if you'd like a little bit of doctorin' done to your script (comic, screenplay or otherwise), reach out to me with the Contact form. I'm great with dialogue, grammar, formatting, pacing, and story.
Hour long, single-camera action-dramedy
Adapted from the original (web)comic book series also created by Burke and Sorkin, P.I. Jane is an action-comedy series that follows the misadventures of a twenty-something girl detective. Think Veronica Mars meets The Middleman and Spaced.
Adapted from the original comic book series The KinderGuard (also created by Burke and Sorkin), I See Monsters is about The KinderGuard, a group of adorable, plucky monster-huntin’ children that operate out of their super secret base, The Playground.
Leslie works with the Indiana Tourism Board from Indianapolis to resurrect the Taste of Pawnee festival, which had disastrous results the last time it was held. Elsewhere, the staff plays hooky.
Note: So, it’s the bittersweet time to retire this spec, as the show tackled familiar waters when Pawnee merged with Eagleton and the gang meets their Eagleton doppelgängers… which is the exact plot of our spec, but with Indianapolis. Sigh… But good to know we’re on the same page as the pros. Though we won’t submit this one anymore, I’ve decided to leave it up here because why the hell not?
The first issue of the rebooted Jane series (we converted it from strip-form to a full, single issue rolled out a page per week). Jane gets assigned a case involving a quirky sleepwalker and tries to shake a pesky shadow stalking her.
Story 01 "Zoey"Zoey’s worried about her trip to her grandmother’s house this weekend. Why? There’s something there besides Grandma. Her brother wants nothing to do with her, so she find help in an unlikely place. The first half of the first issue, this is the script (then called I See Monsters) that would be adapted and expanded into the animated pilot above.
