Studios Take Action Against Late Scripts

TV studios and network executives are cracking down on writers and directors who deliver their scripts late. “A survey found that of the 651 hourlong episodes studied in the latest survey, 333 (51%) were on time, while 318 (49%) were late from one to 15 days, while 20% of the late scripts were late by as many as seven to 15 days.” Studios say the late scripts add greatly to the budgets of the shows.
