Talentville Bar & Grill : I'm new in town!
New guy has a question

I have written a 7 episode series.  I do not see a category for full series.  Do I upload all (7) 1 hour episodes into a single file because in total it is literally over 300 pages?  If I only upload the first episode, how will I know if the same person will get episodes 2-7?  So just uploading a single episode wouldn't really work.  In theory, someone would be assigned episode 5 and have no idea what happened in episodes 1-4.  Suggestions would be great!  Thank you.

You're right.  There's no guarantee the person who read the first episode will read the next one.  Nor the person who's assigned to read the fifth or sixth or seventh has read the first one.  On the other hand, if you upload all 300 pages, chances are no one will want to take on that assignment.

I don't know the answer to your question, but perhaps you could contact the person(s) who read your first episode and ask if they'll read the next one.

For myself (not speaking for TVille or its policies) , if I WAS reading a screen play with series potential I would say put your best foot forward in your pilot. If an executive isn't sold on your pilot, I would think he isn't going to be interested in the rest of your series. Now that's just me. I tend to do written pitches for my series pilots to executives.
