Think your book would make a great movie or television series? Hollywood Coverage—the industry-standard tool used for identifying viable new material—is a cost-effective way to find out.
A professional reader will work to develop your book’s coverage, a standard format in the movie and TV industry. Your coverage will consist of two main elements:
- A thorough synopsis that highlights the main characters and events in your story
- A critical analysis that addresses key story points as well as how your book might be best adapted for the screen
Once your coverage is prepared, it will be considered for TV or movie adaption by 5 More Minutes. If 5 More Minutes is interested in working with you, they will directly contact you to explain their plan of action to gauge your interest. If 5 More Minutes chooses not to engage with your concept, it will then be entered into our Hollywood Database, where registered entertainment professionals can browse and search for new material to adapt into feature films and television series.
* Your Hollywood Coverage will be fulfilled by an independent industry professional who does similar evaluations for the major agencies and studios. We have no input regarding the critical analysis your book receives and we cannot guarantee results the evaluation will yield.
