Any Body Here Write Or Almost Make An Episode?

Post by In_Correct on Mon Oct 08, 2018 11:20 am

I apologize, I have searched every where on the forum posts, and I remember reading several people have submitted episodes to WGBH and at least one instance the production staff of Arthur replied and was talking with them about making an episode.

I tried to write a part A and part B for an episode (two 10 or 11 minute stories) meant to be in the same episode such as when they did "The Chips Are Down" and "Revenge Of The Chip". and kept typing until I finished! Very Happy

The episodes have to do with The Tough Customers and major character development for The Frensky Family based on the earlier Francine episodes. I also wrote that Rattles running out of a building and crashing into Muffy, and she says "How Rude!'. D.W. makes a mistake and learns a very important lesson. I wrote a few nightmare scenes of when they express their fears such as in "Arthur's Mystery Envelope."

I sent it September 25 and it says it will take 6 weeks for a possible response. How long does it take to make an episode that is still a script? Is it going to be in 2020 or 2021 before an episode submitted last month can air?

If who ever that submitted an episode to them and got a response from them is reading this, please provide what happened. I do not even remember the user name or any thing.

Anyone who incorporates Muffy's gloriously hammy catchphrases into their work cannot be a bad writer.

No, but seriously.

I like to make believe that my stories are like Arthur episodes, and in fact, some of my dreams have me being in them.

With Greg Bailey's guidance, I wrote and submitted a spec for a single 11-minute episode, but that was several years ago, and evidently, nothing ever came of it . . . even Greg admitted he was amazed I got as far as I did in the process.

Basically, since WGBH handles the writing process, they were the ones I had to submit my spec to - I also had to read and sign a release form for my submission, otherwise they would consider it unsolicited material, and would not accept it. I was told by the P.A. I submitted my spec to that the script would be forward to the head writer (I assume Peter Hirsch) during their next summer story meeting, and that they would get back with me to let me know if anything will become of my script. But again, they never did, so I assume they're not going to use it.

On a related note, Greg also mentioned to me that often times the writers will drop such material into what they call an ideas bag, which the writers will refer to if they're ever looking for something they can use for a B-story, or a minor subplot, or anything like that.

Either way, it was a neat experience.

I did. Both times I submitted the idea. They politely said they would consider it, and it wasn't an automated response either.

Anything I write would probably not be suitable for the show's target audience. I find it extremely hard to write about simple and innocent things. :/
