Script Doctor


A script doctor is hired by a production company to rewrite an existing script or polish specific aspects of it, including structure, characterization, dialogue, pacing, themes, and other elements.

Their work is often surgical in nature: dropping in, fixing a specific issue, and then dropping out again.

Although some script doctors work full-time, arguably a script doctor is not a professional in itself - nearly all script doctors are screenwriters by trade.
