Screenwriting (including TV scripts) is really, really difficult - about the toughest writing there is. I don't think so. It is also my view that just because most scripting is turned down on the basis of the first 10 pages does not mean that you just need to know how to spell well. The script is "organic".
The script does not consist of ten or twelve sentences of ten pages, it is a whole, and you may as well start the whole learning curve from beginning to end before you start.

Yes, there are exemptions, but you do not run a shop on an exemption basis. To get into this line of work, you need to become a pro, not a happy ham who has written a good script.
Perform 2 readings and analyses per weeks. Locate a scriptworkshop. Don't finish your daily work, but make good L.A. buddies you can rely on when you move here. Don't make any throwaway connections; it' going around. I' m familiar with very skilled authors who have been selling screenplays and working on fiction instead.
