Tell me a little about your career or aspirations in screenwriting

I have been writing comedy for about 25 years. I began with the D Generation on ABC TV (that was in the early 80's!) My most recent work was a fringe show called "Songs from the Musicals That Never Were!" (a parody of musicals) and I've just had an ABC pilot script called "A Million to One" rejected. They liked the scenario and the jokes but they felt the narrative wasn't compelling. Unfortunately I have always written gags or sketches, so I now know my weak spot. I'm hoping to hook up with someone who has some strength in narrative development in the hope of resurrecting the pilot. (It got as far as the short list!) At the very least I hope to get some idea of which direction I might develop.

What would you like to get from the group?

Hopefully I would get some constructive criticism, possibly some ideas about how to improve. In the best possible scenario someone to work with to create professional writing projects.

Introduction

Hi, my name is Trevor Johnson. I have been writing comedy for TV and stage for about thirty years. My aim is to move into professional writing by developing sitcom scripts.
