Farscape Pilot Script

Although you can still find a copy of Farscape’s pilot script for sale on eBay, you can also download a PDF of "Premiere" at TV Writing Pilot School

There’s an amazing list of pilot scripts there, including the pilot scripts for three of the Star Trek series, the Battlestar Galactica miniseries, Caprica (has that even aired yet??), Alien Nation, Heroes, Jericho, Lost, Quantum Leap, and Sliders, — to name but a few of the scifi ones.

What’s even more interesting is that there are pilot scripts available for shows that never made it to pilot stage.  When people say that most television shows fail, this is an illustration of what that means.  Each of these pilot scripts that the networks passed on were originally pitched to the networks, who then decided to pass on it after reading the proposed script. 

I’m awfully glad that didn’t happen to Farscape.
