Sage Sweetwater's Lesbian Western made-for-TV-spin-off Series is Formatted. Television is all about commercials, however Sage Sweetwater's Jett Durango TV Series will not have commercials because the network that will pick it up is an uncensored cable channel compared to HBO's DEADWOOD, but still these cable channels syndicate TV programming to other networks, so the Jett Durango TV Series will be written this way so that Sage may collect residuals on all programming channels the Jett Durango Series may be shown on. This is how it looks for the Four Act formatting:
Four Act television screenplay formatting - teaser - commercial - ACT ONE - commercial - ACT TWO - commercial - ACT THREE - commercial - ACT FOUR - commercial - tag
Sage will be using the formula of 19-16-13-9 plus a teaser (the intro to get the audience hooked) and a tag. The first act will be 19 pages (minutes) before a commercial on a channel that syndicates, ACT TWO will be 16 pages (minutes) before commercial, ACT THREE will be 13 pages (minutes) before commercial and the last ACT FOUR will be 9 pages (minutes) before commercial and then the tag, (the outcome of the episode plot). Each 60-page episode of 23 episodes per season will be written in this format. One page equals one minute of programming. Television commercials get longer as the one-hour show progresses and the script pages get shorter. Television Drama Series writing is a lot harder than feature film writing. Sage has got the formatting down and understands how the drama script works.
An enigma spilling over from a sequence of religious events in the script by Sage Sweetwater brings to the screen the careful artistry of a historical event in the film expertly executed by Sweetwater.
The shocking enigma is written as wrath. Will it later be delivered as a blessing after the discovery, or will fate intervene with the myth of religious history repeating itself?
For Sage Sweetwater, writing the Jett Durango feature film script with religious conflict all throughout the script, the ongoing religious conflict plays itself out in a powerful religious cliffhanger that Jesus Christ does not exist as many know him.
That very 1875 cliffhanger Sweetwater uses to the extreme in the first episode of the spin-off pilot Jett Durango TV Series. Sweetwater strategically writes the cliffhanger to pull in both a non-religious and a religious audience. Religion walks with a caduceus cane hobbling from "The White Collar Ordinance."
Believers of Christianity in both gay and straight society may be of a changed mind when a lesbian western film cliffhanger provokes such deep thought of Sweetwater's contrived scene; paradox of religion in a Second Coming of Pulp Fiction.
