What "coverage" looks like
When writers turn in screenplays, producers, agencies, and studios generally hire people to read them and submit a report. These reports are called "coverage." Many times projects live or die based on their coverage. As an example of one, here is our coverage for the screenplay we wrote for VOLUNTEERS (which eventually became a movie starring Tom Hanks and John Candy). Once you read it you'll know why I saved it all these years. If only all of our coverage from all of our screenplays could receive this kind of reaction.
