Product details...

Hollywood "Screenplay" is the ultimate plan for authors who want to see their book up on the silver screen. That's right. With this option, we write your screenplay for you and you keep all your copyrights. What's more - we put you in touch with our own industry connections, including a production company and Hollywood producer. Once completed, your screenplay will be represented in an effort to secure optioning or purchase by a Hollywood studio. This is the ultimate solution for getting your book on the big (or small) screen. How is that for exposure?

You will receive a full-length screen play -- written to meet the specific needs of the medium you choose (TV, film, etc.) and the genre of your work.

Your screenplay will be written by a Hollywood scriptwriter and will go through numerous reviews by both you and a credited Hollywood producer to deliver to you a final draft of quality and promise.

Once completed, your screenplay will also be submitted to a searchable Hollywood database, used by other studios, executives, and producers seeking materials to pitch, option, or buy.

Plus, as a bonus, an exclusive 3-year effort will automatically be set into motion by a Hollywood production company to option your completed screenplay with Hollywood studios, producers, and/or stars.  Just imagine! Your own screenplay making the rounds in Hollywood as a hot property.

How much is it worth to you to get your book in front of the same Hollywood insiders who, combined, have worked on some of Hollywood's hottest properties, including:
· The Hunger Games
· The Blind Side
· Secretariat
· The Road
· G.I. Joe
· Wild Hogs
· Blades of Glory
· High School Musical
· The Book of Eli
· Enchanted
· True Blood (HBO)
· The Wire (HBO)
· Boardwalk Empire (HBO)
· Six Feet Under (HBO)
· The Sopranos (HBO)
· The Amazing Race (CBS)
· Survivor (CBS)

Hollywood Option Agreement

You hereby grant Outskirts Press and its affiliates, including, but not limited to, partner production company ("VM"), the right to read and evaluate your book ("Property") for the purposes of completing this option and considering your Property for option/purchase on your behalf. You understand such evaluation is a subjective process, allowing for reasonable disagreement as to the relative merits of the Property. You also understand that the evaluation may or may not be complimentary or positive in its judgment, and that the evaluation fee is non-refundable.

You acknowledge that because of its position in the entertainment industry, VM and its affiliates are exposed to numerous ideas, formats, stories, suggestions, concepts and the like all the time. You further understand that many stories, ideas and concepts are similar and that different stories, ideas and concepts frequently relate to one or more common underlying themes and may closely resemble other works. You therefore understand and agree that you will not be entitled to any compensation or other consideration because of the use of such similar materials, stories, ideas, and/or concepts that may have come to VM or its affiliates prior to or subsequent to your purchases of this option. You hereby release Outskirts Press, VM, and its affiliates for any and all claims, liabilities and demands that may be made by you asserting that Outskirts Press and/or VM have misused or misappropriated the Property, or any portion thereof.

You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to copyright or register the Property with the Writer's Guild of America prior to submitting it to VM for consideration and hereby release Outskirts Press, VM, and its affiliates from any claims that arise from your failure to do so. You acknowledge and agree that, outside of the deliverables of said option described above, no other obligations exist or shall exist or be deemed to exist unless and until a formal written agreement has been prepared and entered into by all applicable parties, and then those parties' rights and obligations concerning any purchases or options shall be only such as are expressed in said formal written agreement.

In order for VM to arrange for possible purchase or option of your novel by Hollywood producers and facilitate the possible adaptation of your book into a movie, TV show or other media, VM shall have the exclusive right for a period of 3 years ("Shopping Term") from the delivery of the treatment document, subject to extension, to shop the Property to producers, production companies, distributors, studios, networks, internet companies, gaming companies, etc. ("Third Parties") for development, production or utilization in all media including film, scripted or unscripted television, web series, live theatre, video games etc.
 
VM shall have the exclusive right to negotiate, enter into or arrange for options of the property, subject to the approval of the author. In the event that VM is still in active negotiations for a written agreement or memorandum with any such Third Party, the VM Shopping Term shall automatically extend for the duration of such negotiations, but, in any event, no longer than sixty (60) additional days.

The VM Shopping Term for Property shall automatically be extended unless Outskirts Press or the author specifically elects, in writing, to have Property and any related materials produced by VM removed from the VM Hollywood database.

The Hollywood Option fees are non-refundable once purchased.
