Lynne Pembroke - Screenplay Coverage


film lights and camera

 Lynne's enthusiasm and obvious love of the work, coupled with her efficient ability to handle volumes of scripts
without sacrificing insight and critical analysis made her a very valuable asset to our Program.

Did you know that over 90% of screenplay submissions to
agents and production companies fail to get past a first read?

It's important that you go that extra mile and be absolutely certain your screenplay or TV script is as good as it can possibly be before you enter that screenplay contest or offer your script to agents and producers.   In the screenplay development process, there is no substitute for professional screenplay coverage and screen story analysis.  

For a new screenwriter, breaking into the motion picture industry is never an easy task.  Some enter screenplay competitions in the hope they'll gain much needed exposure.  Others query and submit their original screenplays directly to agents and producers.   Whether you choose the screenplay competitions/movie contests route, or submit your script to agents and producers directly, you only get ONE chance, so make it count!  Professional screenplay coverage allows you to see your work from an expert's point of view.      

I've read and provided professional screenplay coverage for  thousands of scripts by both new writers and seasoned pros.   I know where screenwriters tend to come up short, and I'm ready, able, and willing to help.  My screenplay coverage is intended to help the writer polish both their script and their writing skills. 

As part of my screenplay coverage and TV script coverage services, you'll receive extensive notes covering story, premise, plot, character development, dialogue, structure, format, and production value.

My  Experience  Includes...

For over twenty years I've worked as a professional freelance reader for Hollywood agents, screenplay contests, movie producers and film and TV studios.  I count Stephen Cannell Productions, Walt Disney Studios, ABC TV and other prestigious organizations among my satisfied clients.  I've also critiqued, provided development notes, and edited scripts for many independent writers, including an Emmy Award winner.

Since 1990 I've worked every year as the lead reader for one of  the most respected writer fellowship programs in the industry.  I also read and serve as a judge for several major screenplay competitions.

After so many years in the business, I know what producers, contest judges, and agents are looking for.  Every year I assist hundreds of screenwriters in their efforts to achieve their professional goals.


As Director of the program before my recent retirement, I can vouch for Lynne's excellent coverage.  As a reader with the Program since its inception in 1990...Lynne lived up to her reputation.  Lynne's enthusiasm and obvious love of the work, coupled with her efficient ability to handle volumes of scripts without sacrificing insight and critical analysis, made her a very valuable asset to our Program.

I knew I needed help from a professional script analyst, but I didn't want just anybody to play such an important part in the development of my work.  I had five screenplays that needed coverage and notes.  Establishing the relationship was as simple as clicking onto Lynne's URL.  Lynne's comments were so cogent and pertinent that they could not be ignored and I can honestly say that being introduced to her is the best thing that's ever happened to my writing.  Without her help, my scripts would never have attracted the kind of response they did; one optioned, another exclusively represented by a WGA Agent, and one being developed by a manager/producer.  Her complete honesty is tempered by the gentle care she communicates while targeting specific problems and offering specific solutions.  I highly recommend Lynne to anyone serious about moving to the next step in this business.

Rewrites are tough for everybody.  Lynne's analysis will reveal your script's weaknesses and suggest solutions for the rewrite.  Her advice on structure and plotting is the best I've ever received.  All of her notes are insightful and easy on a writer's ego.  Lynne's analysis of my first two scripts resulted in them doing well in several contests, including a first place win...
Diane Banegas, Screenplay Coverage Client

Lynne Pembroke was worth every dime.  Her comments were direct, insightful and most importantly, useful.  My latest script just took second place in the 2002 Scriptapalooza screenwriting competition.  That wouldn't have happened without Lynne.
M.P. Screenplay Coverage Client , Westlake Village, CA.

She is a writer's dream: intelligent, straight shooting feedback dispensed in a timely manner at a truly fair price.
Marty Nemko, Ph.D., author and columnist, San Francisco Chronicle, Screenplay Coverage Client .

I found Lynne's name on the Screenwriters Guild web page of endorsed readers.  I submitted my first attempt writing a screenplay to Lynne in late 2003 for analysis, a prequel to a Sci-fi classic.  Lynne's much appreciated frank analysis of my first attempt provided the impetus I needed to succeed.  Writers, even novice ones, live and die by the stroke of a pen.  Following an arduous ten month re-write based on the results of Lynne's analysis, I was offered a contract for representation from an agency for my first screenplay last week.  For once, I'm at a loss for words to thank Lynne for her help and encouragement.  It will be something I will cherish forever.
Mike Weimer,  Screenplay Coverage Client,  Inver Grove Heights, MN

Lynne's feedback isn't just about pointing out flaws.  It's about showing you how you can improve as a writer.  My advice is to think of her services as an investment in yourself...I give all the credit to her for helping me turn the corner as a writer.
Mike Mulcahy, Screenplay Coverage Client, Semi-Finalist

I would absolutely rate her analytical ability and judgment as 5 out of 5.
L. J., Director.  Venice Arts Screenwriting Competition.

We use Lynne as one of our readers and have found her coverage to be fast yet thorough, concise, offers excellent suggestions regarding possible rewrites, and she has a keen eye for catching anomalies most other readers never recognize.  We recommend Lynne Pembroke with no reservations and anyone using her services will not be disappointed.
C. B., President, C D B Literary Company, Screenplay Coverage Client.

First of all, your feedback made all the difference to our screenplay.  We went through and completely revised it and sent it along to an agent in NYC who had read the earlier version.  He said...Somewhere between that first version and this one you learned how to write a screenplay...I gave credit where credit was due.  He's now representing it, with great enthusiasm, thanks to you.
B. F., Screenplay Coverage Client, Santa Cruz, CA.

Lynne makes getting admonitions a pleasure. Her coverage is not a vague series of reproachful comments, but a detail oriented list of points where your script rubber doesn't meet the road. Her comments are detail oriented and salient, but they are general enough to let you be creative and improve as a writer. When readers see my draft after her coverage, they all agree that the draft has improved. Though others have offered good advice, I have had consistent results with Lynne's assistance.
