Think your book would make a great movie or television series? Hollywood Coverage—the industry-standard tool used for identifying viable new material—is a cost-effective way to find out.

Once your Hollywood Coverage is complete, we will submit it to our first-look Hollywood partner, Thruline Entertainment, who will review your work as a potential adaptation for film and television. Thruline Entertainment is a Hollywood management and production company whose clients include Academy Award Nominated screenwriters, Emmy Award winners and numerous A-list Hollywood actors.

If after reviewing your Hollywood Coverage Thruline decides not to engage on your project, a concise synopsis and critical analysis of your book will be placed into our Hollywood Database where agents, directors, actors and producers will have access to the information. As an alternative to knocking on the doors of Hollywood agents or cold calling production companies, this service gives you legitimate access to entertainment decision-makers.


A professional reader will work to develop your book’s coverage, a standard format in the movie and TV industry. Your coverage will consist of two main elements:

  • A thorough synopsis that highlights the main characters and events in your story
  • A critical analysis that addresses key story points as well as how your book might be best adapted for the screen

Once your coverage is prepared, Thruline Entertainment will have a look at it and assess whether or not your concept is fit for adaptation. If Thruline is interested in working with you, they will directly contact you to explain their plan of action to gauge your interest. If Thruline chooses not to engage with your concept, it will then be entered into our Hollywood Database, where registered entertainment professionals can browse and search for new material to adapt into feature films and television series.

* Your Hollywood Coverage will be fulfilled by an independent industry professional who does similar evaluations for the major agencies and studios. AuthorHouse has no input regarding the critical analysis your book receives and we cannot guarantee results the evaluation will yield.
