Whether you’re going for the Kindle edition or the spiffy new paperback, when you stop by Amazon to pick up Writing the Pilot, you can now download a free Kindle version of the pilot script for ABC’s new drama series Revenge.
It’s a great — and rare — opportunity to see the pilot script before you watch the actual show. (There’s a link at the back of the script you can follow to see the filmed pilot, as well.)
The script itself is a modern day version of The Count of Monte Cristo combined with The Real Housewives of The Hamptons. Which is actually a lot better than that sounds. My own feeling reading it was that it would make for a great ten episodes or so, and I’d have absolutely no idea how to keep the series going after that. But I assume ABC asked — and received answers — to that kind of question.
Of course, it is the same network that thought they could get multiple seasons out of Life on Mars and Flash Forward…
