Have You Been Reading Your “Daily Script?”

cool script pic found on the web

Regular visitors to TVWriter™ (um, you’re a regular visitor, aren’t you? Huh? Huh?) know that posts about where to read successful (and maybe unsuccessful) professionally written TV and film scripts are always highly popular here.

So – and not just to attract page views but mainly to continue our visitors’ writing progress – we’re here to tell you today about a site recommended by one of our minions.

It’s called The Daily Script, and as the folks there say on their opening page, Daily Script is “a collection of movie scripts and screenplays to serve as a resource for writers and actors and those who simply enjoy reading movie scripts. The movie scripts are presented in proper script format (for the most part) and where possible, multiple drafts are presented.”

The site features a new script every day (duh), and also has sections you can browse through to find many of the TV and film scripts you may be looking for. Here’s a partial list of what we saw in the TV section of the site the last time we visited:
