Screenplay Coverage Packages

Monument Scripts offers seven screenplay coverage packages, designed to meet your needs at different phases of your project. Read below for details of each package. Screenplay coverage is available for both film and television.

For an overview of what’s included in coverage packages, see the Services page.

Over the three years that our indie thriller Father’s Day (fathersday-themovie.com) has been in development, we have had four different screenplay readers provide coverage. Brian’s coverage was the most helpful, most professional, and most detailed. We will use his service again and recommend him to anyone who wants quality coverage. ~ James Russell
