Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Sara Ring

An interview with screenwriter Sara Ring regarding the Scriptapalooza TV Writing Competition.

Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?

A: I wrote a "Will & Grace" spec entitled "Goy, Interrupted." Jack enrolls in Hebrew School so he can have a Bar Mitzvah, and Will gets more than he bargains for when he dates a "nice guy."

Q: What made you enter this particular contest? Have you entered any other contests with this script? If so, how did you do?

A: My friend Jami recommended the Scriptapalooza contest to me. I also entered the ABC/Disney Fellowship with this script, and they said it was the best spec they had ever received! Actually they didn't say anything. I didn't get in.

Q: Were you satisfied with the adminstration of the contest? Did they meet their deadlines? Did you receive all the awards that were promised?

A: I'm blanking a bit on this, but I believe they did extend the notification deadline a few times. I did receive my check in a timely fashion.

Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?

A: I don't believe this contest offers feedback; I didn't get any.

Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?

A: Sadly, I wasn't contacted by any agents, managers, or producers, which was disappointing considering my script was apparently sent to 25 people. But it's still nice to have on my resume. I also think people are more willing to read my script because of the win, even though "Will & Grace" isn't on the air anymore. It's extended the life of the spec somewhat.

Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?

A: My background is in playwriting and improv/sketch comedy. "Will & Grace" was the first TV spec I'd ever completed. Now I have a few more under my belt.

Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?

A: I moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 2005. I'm an east coast girl all the way, but I actually love it out here. I would definitely recommend the move to anyone looking to get into the "biz." I expected to hate it for at least a year, but I acclimated surprisingly quickly. And I know it's beyond cliché, but the weather here is ridiculous.

Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?

A: I'm currently working on an original TV pilot. It's "Kids, Incorporated" meets "24." Just kidding.
