Run by screenwriters, for screenwriters, The Script Department is a production company that puts the screenplay front and centre.  


We have a scripted podcast of the same name that provides script readings of short and feature-length 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 Instagram @thescriptdepartment where we do weekly livestream discussions. Finally, you can get all of this first here at thescriptdepartment.net.
