- geoffsayshi said: HEY! I’m writing a pilot too! How long would you say it’s supposed to be?
for a hour long pilot, the script is generally between 52-60 pages, so they could cut it down to 40-42 during filming and post production.
For a half hour pilot, between 25-30, so they can cut it down to 22.
My current pilot is 72, hence the need to chop up the pages.
