14 Reps. Your Script. Coverage Ink's Get Repped Now is back! From March 13 - June 4th, all screenplay and pilot submissions that score a "consider" or better for script (roughly top 5%) are elevated to our industry panel with our recommendations. In the past this has resulted in meetings, specs sold, movies made and careers launched. Do you have the write stuff?
HOW IT WORKS
1. You submit your pilot or feature script during our Get Repped Now! period (March 13 - June 4th 2023.)
2. If the reader rates your material a “consider” for script, it will automatically be elevated to the manager panel at the end of Get Repped Now!
3) All submissions will receive full screenplay or pilot analysis, so if you do not score a ‘consider’ for script, your coverage report will detail why and show you how to hopefully get it into the zone in the next draft. You may then, if you desire, resubmit a revised draft for another round of coverage before the Get Repped Now! end date if you have time.
When you submit your screenplay or pilot to Get Repped Now, you are actually submitting your screenplay or pilot for full CoverageInk.com standard analysis. You will receive a-in-depth analysis (generally 10-14 pages or so) from us (aka "coverage.") This includes a logline, synopsis, around 5-8 pages of notes and comments, followed by a 40-category grid that rates every facet of your script from Awesome! to Needs Work.
Finally, both the script and writer are rated from "PASS" to "RECOMMEND" for both script and writer. All "considers" for script are elevated to our agent/manager panel with our recommendations. Even if you do not get a "consider," every submission receives comprehensive, empowering feedback that can act as the blueprint for honing and toning the next draft. And if you submit during the first two weeks, you may even be able to get the coverage back and address the notes and resubmit before the final deadline.

There are no awards or prizes. Only access and opportunity.
Get Repped Now is not a contest, and it is not a competition. All scripts that score a "consider" for script are advanced to our agent/manager panel, whether it's one or fifty. What happens after that is up to them, and to you.*
Every screenplay or pilot submitted receives a detailed standard analysis from Coverage Ink. These coverage reports generally run 10-14 pages and give the writer a solid roadmap to what works and what needs more TLC, with empowering suggestions for making sure it rocks as hard as possible.
*There are no guarantees of representation. Not every "consider" will get repped. However, we will advocate for you as well as act as your advisor/coach to help you present in the best possible way to any interested reps and maximize any interest.
You may submit as many screenplays and/or pilots as you wish before the Get Repped Now (GRN) final deadline (June 4th, 2023.)
You must be the writer/writers of your submission, or else have an option or legal right to submit the material.
All scripts entered will receive full screenplay coverage from an experienced analyst from the Coverage Ink (CI) team. No screenplays are read by interns or students.
Only screenplays and teleplays that receive a ‘consider’ (or better) for SCRIPT will be advanced to the manager panel. Scripts that receive a ‘consider’ for writer but do not receive a ‘consider’ (or better) for script will not be passed along. A “consider with reservations” is NOT a consider.
Offer ends at 11:59 PM of the GRN deadline June 4th, 2023.
Offer only valid on screenplays and teleplays submitted for coverage to Coverage Ink.com during the GRN period (March 13th to June 4th, 2023.) We are always happy to evaluate your work anytime, but Get Repped Now takes place in a short window of time for a reason.
Due to the volume of submissions, please allow 10-30 days (or longer, if you submit near the deadline) to receive your standard analysis back from CI during Get Repped Now. We will send you an estimated turnaround time when you submit. The closer you are to the deadline, the longer the wait will likely be. If you need faster turnaround, contact us — we can do that, but the script will not be entered into Get Repped Now.
Due to the volume of submissions, writers cannot select which readers will read their submissions during the GRN period. We will assign your material to whomever we think is the best fit for it based on genre, logline, and other info you provide, as well as our readers' tastes, strengths and availability. We will pair your submission with a reader who specializes in that style (we have over 30 readers.)
Offer open to everyone over the age of 18 worldwide where permitted.
All genres are accepted. We will match your submission with a reader(s) who is well-versed with your genre.
Feature scripts must be below 130 pages to qualify; TV pilots below 70 pages for a one-hour, or below 40 pages (single-spaced, single camera-style) or 55 pages (double spaced, multi-camera style) for half-hours.
Short film scripts, spec TV episodes of established shows, treatments and outlines, plays and manuscripts are not eligible for Get Repped Now (but we’re always happy to take a look!)
Screenplay and Teleplay submissions must be in industry standard format. If you are unfamiliar with these, pick up a copy of the Coverage Ink Spec Format & Style Guide Edition X, available as a PDF download from the Coverage Ink website.
At the end of your screenplay coverage report, the script will be rated from ‘pass’ to ‘recommend’ for both script and writer. But only the “script” score counts towards Get Repped Now. The ratings are:
Consider With Reservations
The vast majority of scripts are a ‘pass.’ That doesn’t mean they’re not any good; it generally just means there’s work to be done. Anything above ‘consider’ is pretty rare.
A ‘consider with reservations’ for script, while laudable, is not a ‘consider’ and thus doesn’t qualify. However, that often means you’re almost there, so get to work!
Resubmissions: You are welcome to resubmit any script or pilot as many times as you like during Get Repped Now. We have several amazing clients who, in the past, started out with a “pass” for script, and then through incredible effort, utilizing the notes they received from Coverage Ink, revised the script, resubmitted by the deadline and got a “consider.” (Resubmissions are read by a new reader, and you will receive another detailed coverage report.) Resubmissions are $10 off, so be sure to tick the box to get the discount.
If your script receives a consider, please allow a few weeks after the scripts are submitted to the panel to hear back. If they are interested, they may contact you directly. If they are not, Coverage Ink will get back to you with the reason they passed. What happens moving forward is up to them and to you.
If your script receives a consider, you will have the ability to do a polish on the script based on the coverage before submitting to the managers and agent. We strongly encourage you to do so.
