Short Bio

I've been writing , reading and watching movies for most of my life. - a life in which often few other things brought fulfillment, or even made sense. I pursued a Communication Arts major for a couple of years, but for the most part, my ADHD didn't play well with an academic environment. I had to get out there, start living - and writing about - life. And worry about the kind of credentials I can frame and hang on a wall at another time.

Internal Affairs tv series
Genre: Crime
Review Rating:
Two minority veteran​ cops team up to start a culturally diverse investigative unit that will hold bad cops accountable for corruption and brutality.

The characters talk and reveal too much in the opener. It doesn't feel organic at this moment. You might want to have them be more cryptic and mysterious about the back-story that led up to this murderous moment. And who is this ROOKIE in the car, and why doesn't he get any dialogue or defining characteristics whatsoever. " a ROOKIE stays in the car, obscured. " That's it. they even talk to this guy, and he doesn't respond or anything. this next conversation in the diner needs to get to the point faster. this is an essentially important rule when writing for telivision, because precise length is critical. get rid of: GOZALES : John so good of you to come, please have a seat RITTER: Angela, good to see you again as well.. GONZALEZ: So, John how ahav you been?. . . . And it goes on like this. The way conversations sound in real life, and they way they sound on telivision are two very different things. Characters only speak in order to serve their purpose in the story. We're entertaining people here, not reminding them of the real world they want to escape from. PLUS this conversation goes on for five pages - that's FIVE MINUTES of this episode, devoted to sitting in a diner talking. This is writing for TV, so the action has to move quickly, and information must come in smal bite sized chunks. ok, an EXCERPT: int. apartment. day electronics and piles of brand new jeans shirts jackets ARE all over. a mattress IS on the floor in the living room. These words "ARE" and "IS" amount to PASSIVE VOICE which is bad for a writer to do. You see how having those words in there makes the whole description sound uninvolved? Undescriptive. Instead, go with: "Electronics and piles of brand new jeans litter the floor, and a dishevelled mattress sits on the floor in the living room." saying THERE IS and THERE ARE will jjst make you sound less dynamic. then there's the part where you have this one character call another OG like three times in the space of ten seconds. Hey OG! how's it goin g OG? come and sit down OG? Does that sound right to you?. because it most certainly does not sound right to me. Now, I get the culturally diverse and gender equality vibe here, but you need more that that.there has to be something EDGY about these characters, and the TONE in which they are portrayed. additionally, this dialogue lacks. FLARE and FLAVOR, it has to reflect the personality of the characters, and i'm not gleening any personality traits from this. You want to ask yourself, why to we CARE about these characters, and what they're up to? And that's the problem, there's nothing here that draws me in and won't let go. OK, now on page fifteen, again: CROOKED CRACKER COPS... DOES THAT SOUND RIGHT TO YOU??????!!!1!!!! BECAUSE IT MOST CERTAINLY DOES MOTHER-EFFING NOT TO ME!!!!! It s so important to ASK yourself: Does this sound like something a serious human being would say if he was trying to get a point across ????????????????????????????? this script has a lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-oon-g journey to take before it's ready for the big time. remember: Why do we care? How are these characters different/unusual? Is the dialogue real/convincing? good luck.
