NEW: SEAL TEAM (CBS)

Hats off to David Boreanaz, who following a 12 year stint on FOX’s long-running Bones, now lands a leading role in CBS’ new fall drama SEAL Team.

This fall Boreanaz will take on the role of Jason Hayes in a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high stakes missions our country can ask of them.

Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice, and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication, even in the face of overwhelming odds. Did we mention David Boreanaz?

I WANT TO JOIN THE WRITING TEAM. HOW DO I GET STARTED?

We don’t mind if you have no previous professional writing experience as long as your reviews are of a professional standard. As ScreenSpy is an online medium with a high daily turnover, we require writers to be able to submit articles no later than the day following the US airing of the episode under review, unless it airs elsewhere first.

Additionally, writers should be available to communicate briefly with the editor by email when submitting material.

Whether you are looking for an audience, experience, recognition or just a home for your work, we would like to hear from you.

Current contributors with ScreenSpy generally have some experience writing for another magazine or blog, even a personal one (not required but hey, that’s always an advantage, right?) have English as a first language, live in the US or Canada (again, not required but preferable for timely submissions) and have a love of TV. We also cannot accept contributions that subsequently appear in other magazines, or personal blogs.

Here’s how to get in touch.

Email the editor at: submissions@screenspy.com

Tell us a little about yourself and any writing experience you many have, and what relevant (on the air, or airing this season) shows you might like to cover. We may ask to see a writing sample, or ask you to submit a sample review.

 WHAT SORT OF THING ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

While there’s always a home on the internet for a straight up recap (a synopsis of main events), what we really love are reviews that offer that little something extra by means of the author’s opinion, or deeper knowledge of the show, or a discussion of character motivations, or guessing out loud where a plot thread will take characters and events over the weeks to come.

Put simply, imagine this. You’ve just watched an episode of your favorite TV show, and come online to see what people are saying about it. What would you most like to read? That’s the kind of thing we’d like you to write, and the kind of thing we’d like to share with our readers.
