Coverage, Ink. was founded in January, 2002 by Jim Cirile, a multi-produced, WGA-member writer/artist/musician and columnist for Creative Screenwriting magazine.

Jim built up a network of production company and agency readers whom he utilized to hone his own material before sending it out to agents, managers, and production companies. Now you can have the same advantage.

Coverage is simply a reader's report. Every script submitted to a feature film studio or agency or production company gets "covered." Readers are the companies' first and best line of defense.

The reader's report usually provides a one or two page synopsis of the screenplay, a breakdown of the characters, a page or two of commentary/evaluation, and lastly, a bar graph evaluating your screenplay from Excellent to Poor in the following categories:

  • Main Characters
  • Minor Characters
  • Story
  • Premise
  • Visual Elements
  • Craft
  • Commercial Prospects
  • Title

Finally, your screenplay is rated either "Recommend," "Consider," or "Pass," for both the script itself and for the writer. See the FAQs section for more details on coverage definitions.
