Adaptation Evaluation

A candid, industry-savvy evaluation of a book or manuscript’s film crossover potential

For book authors considering screen adaptation, TED’s Los Angeles-based Director of Development John Robert Marlow will read your manuscript, prepare a brief written report, and follow up with a one-hour phone consultation to discuss the cinematic merits of your story, characters, dialogue, structure, pacing, and subject matter—as well as how any (or all) of these elements might be modified to help make your adapted story more screen-friendly. If you want help writing an adapted screenplay, or want us to write one for you, we can do that too. Your phone consultation can be recorded, and a copy can be emailed to you. We offer similar services to screenwriters interested in adapting their scripts into books.
$0.01 per word for manuscripts over 50,000 words, plus a nominal setup fee for new clients. For pricing of shorter works and screenplay-to-book adaptation evaluations, please contact the Tucson office at (520) 546-9992.
Typically less than 3 weeks.
