Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 807: how many scripts is enough to have written?

There's no exact number. You can have one script that is the next big blockbuster/hit pilot that sells and that's it. Just know, if you want an agent, they're going to want to know what else you have because once you sell something it's a great time for them to pitch more of your material.

If you're a television writer, you should have at least 2 spec scripts for current shows. That means if your favorite show is 24 and you have a spec for it, you had better write a new one because 24 is over... although I'm still holding out hope that Jack will come back, somehow... someway. He is Jack Bauer after all. These days, agents are also interested in seeing an original pilot.
