Ronny Chieng: International Student

If, like me, you enjoyed the first season of ABC TV’s Ronny Chieng: International Student in 2017, you will probably be hoping for a second season.

I confess that I enjoyed this series so much I wrote some fan fiction, i.e. this Spec Script for Season 2, Episode 1. Okay, the TV production company behind the series sent back “The Supp” to me unread (the sad but likely fate of most spec scripts), so I’ve now posted it for other Ronny Chieng tragics to check out.

Aspiring TV scriptwriters might be interested to know the average ratio of 1 script page to 1 minute of screentime, which is used for most feature films, does not hold for dialogue-driven TV. For most TV scripts an average ratio of 1.5+ script pages to 1 minute of screentime is applicable. Hence, my 40-page script is designed for a 26-minute non-commercial (ABC TV) ‘half-hour’.

In the unlikely event you take the time to download and read the PDF of the above script, please feel free to comment below.
