Script Coverage/Screenplay Coverage is a 3-5 page report evaluating the quality and potential of a written submission to be a successful film for that particular production company. Final judgment is a Recommend, Consider, or Pass. Most scripts are given a Pass (at least 85% of all submissions). This can be for story or commercial reasons. Recommends are very rarely given; this is an extremely high grade and basically means the script is ready to shoot. Thus, a Consider is considered to be positive, and should make a writer very happy! There are many factors involved in passing this test. A script must not only be well-written but must also appeal to the company’s commercial and thematic sensibilities. For example, it could be a wonderful fresh romantic comedy, but if that producer or executive is not looking to make a romantic comedy, then they will Pass.
