Script Doctor Eric began giving notes on screenplays in 2001 while working for a mid-level talent agency in Century City. Since then, Eric worked as a freelance reader for agents, managers, and production companies in the Los Angeles area, where he currently lives with his wife, son, dog, and worthless cat.
The number of scripts analyzed by Eric is in the thousands. In fact, he stopped counting years ago.
