I am releasing the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Lost Episode (my spec script), “Kimmy Becomes a Big Sister,” into the universe.  The script chronologically takes place after Season One of the Netflix hit show.

How does one go about writing a spec script? This is what I did. Having watched the entire first season, I got a copy of the pilot (which envisioned a different name for the show) and deconstructed it. I copied the formatting of the script but had such a good feel for the voices of each of the characters that once I started to write them, from the point that I wrote down their names on my Final Draft created script the popped into life and I could see Jacqueline, Kimmy, Titus, Lillian and others saying my words. It was a really fun experience.

Things have happened both in New York City and on the show that make the script dated.  But it fits “feel” of the show and could have been a lost episode of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt somewhere in between Seasons One and Two or at the start of Season Two.

I hope you will enjoy reading Kimmy Becomes a Big Sister and send me your comments on social media or at johnny@johnnypappas.com.
