Re: Help me write a pilot episode! (Sci-fi vs Fantasy)
It actually needs to be 15 minutes (rather than pages) for the readers theater, and I'm using the 1 page per minute format (broken when I pasted here.)
 I figure I'll strip out ALL the descriptions, and just keep the dialogue, and I agree it's not the place for the intro exposition (or the matching outro), so I can save time there too.
 I should also be working on my logline and a slightly longer summary of the exposition to give the actors with the script. Half a page max. I'll post it here once I have a decent draft.
The name of the show is "Famous for Fifteen." It's a bi-annual performance featuring 5-6 scripts from local writers each time. A lot of the readers are also members of the local Shakespeare company. I think it's the ideal crowd to find my cast. They did R&J recently and it was f-ing dynamite!
