Anyway, here's a taste of what a CHEERS outline was like. The story and script changes from step to step. A writer turns in an outline. He gets notes. He turns in the first draft. He gets more notes. Once he turns in the second draft the staff may make further changes before it goes to the stage. And then during the week of production there's usually more polishing.
Hope you find this instructive, and oh, I find that whenever I post scripts I get notes from readers. "You should've said it this way." "That's not funny." Like there's anything I can do about it now. This is a twenty year old outline for a show that has already been shot. No notes please. However, you are welcome to rewrite it yourself. Just don't send it in. Thanks and enjoy.
