About Us

Run by screenwriters, for screenwriters, The Script Department is a production company that puts the screenplay front and centre. We also research the craft of screenwriting from an academic perspective and it is this unique blend of scholarly and industrial insight that makes our work stand out.


We have a fortnightly podcast of the same name that provides script readings of unproduced screenplays as well as a blog that provides helpful tips and analyses of the latest movies.


You can find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and wherever you find your podcasts. We are also on twitter @thescriptdept where we post extracts from popular screenplays. Finally, you can get all of this first here at thescriptdepartment.net.
