With Futurama being on the air for two more years and potentially more they will almost certainly be looking for free lance writers to do episodes. Does anyone have any experience in sending the Futurama staff spec scripts?
So you're angling to be the next Carolyn Premish, huh? Firstly, you'll need to send your scripts via an agent. Secondly, you'll probably just annoy the Futurama people by doing so - what they'll be wanting in order to evaluate letting you play in their sandbox will be some original
work, or at the very least something from a different setting. Otherwise you might be mailing them what amounts to a bunch of ideas that they can not use
, since they'd have to buy that script
from you in order to do so without opening themselves up to a lawsuit.
Television producers don't like to do business that way. They'd prefer to hire somebody, then have everything that person produces which is set in their own creative universe be theirs by default.
Take a show which is either one of the influences on Futurama or one of those that have been parodied on it, that's been cancelled, or is over/finished, and write a sample standalone episode for it. Get yourself a hollywood agent, and have him submit the script to MG or DXC, with a short letter saying that you'd like to know if they're looking for anybody to write for Futurama
If you're lucky, you'll get a polite rejection within 6-8 weeks. If you're not, you won't hear anything.
I hope you have fun doing this - you certainly won't get anything else
out of it.
