TIP: Studio Coverage is a report that an analyst would give a producer/studio which assesses the current potential of the script and writer, and recommends whether the script and writer are currently worth commissioning (and a ‘Recommend’ is quite rare due to the high risks involved with producing a film). Development Notes are designed to help the writer achieve their goals with the script and improve its commercial potential.
