Yes, except I would use different wording than "third sequence" so it doesn't sound so stiff. For instance over the phone he could be RASPY VOICE and when you introduce BOB he has the same raspy...

I like the idea of trying to call home with no reception. She could basically run back home to safety. Maybe even when heads home her parents are headed out to the country looking for her. Seems like...

The logline sounds more like a movie than a series right now. Once the psychiatrist discovers what the root of the problem is, it sounds like the end (the a sense of closure you get in a movie). This...

Does he really have to plant evidence? I would have him black mail the DA. The DA says "Why? You won't win in court." His response along the lines of "Make sure "Such&So" gets the case. I've seen...

I used to be big on capitalizing all sounds. Now, this is the seldom occasion where I'll do so. I only use it to call attention to a loud/shocking sound that I want to stand out to the reader. In...

Who is the main character? The man? His struggle and identity don't sound very interesting as of yet. Also, you said it's a comedy. To me it's more offensive that woman-lead world is inherently...

In my college days I've used sides from the script as well as a short improv to see how they can interpret the character. And I agree ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS redirect them even if you like the way they...
