Tv Show Script Format
I've seen so many different examples/suggestions online for the format for 1/2 hour comedy TV shows in terms of total pages a screenplay must be, and writing 'Act 1, Act 2, Act 3' in the headings. My questions are 1) how many pages should a screenplay episode be?
Less than 42 pages? 2) Do 'Act 1,2,3' headings need to be included?

Single spaced like a film. As far as structure, it depends on what distribution outlet youre targeting. If it's network or basic cable then yes you should include your acts and act breaks. If its HBO or Netflix, you may not. But id suggest including the acts anyway as it may help you. Most sitcoms have a cold open, 2 or 3 acts, and a Tag. Structure of tv series seems to be slowly merging with film structure but traditional networks still want traditional structure for the most part.

Hi David, I agree with what Danny posted for the most part. I've seen single-cam pilots come in at the 35-36 page range, but you're better off in heeding Danny's advice and keep it in the low 30s, but not less than 24 pages. You're writing a multi-cam show, and formatting it as such. Multi-cam format is quite a bit different than single-cam and has a lot more white space.

Doug - they are any first drafts and of course not the final draft, but give unexperienced writers an idea of how to write a tv script very well. Check them yourself, you find the way how to write the opening scene, how to divide the acts etc. I did and don't know what shall be sanitized in the scripts I read as I could follow the show with the script on my knees without any problem.
