Stephen Colbert on the set of The Late Show

"During COVID-19 sequestering, Scripto has become even more indispensable. Wherever my staff is physically, Scripto brings us all together and communicates the needs of production seamlessly. We REALLY couldn't do The Late Show without Scripto, now."

True Collaboration

Write with others in the same script at the same time, with automatic industry-standard formatting. You deserve better than Google Docs!
Track produced elements like graphics and footage as they are created, deleted, or revised — without waiting for a phone call or an email. We promise: Less email.

Running Commentary

Threaded comments let you make notes, share feedback, or pitch alt jokes that won't get lost in crosstalk.

Change Tracking

Side-by-side comparison view makes it easy to see what’s been added or removed in each new draft. Revert to a previous version if you overdo it.

Accurate Script Timing

Our script timer uses a customizable speaking rate, segment breakdowns, and media clip tracking to calculate the estimated running time of your show down to the second.

Push to Prompter

Send scripts directly to a teleprompter with the click of a button. Scripto automatically filters your script for what needs to be prompted, saving the prompter operator from manual cleanup at crunch time.

Screenplay Format

Scripted shows using the industry-standard screenplay format can now have true collaboration in the writers room. It's also great for pre-taped sketches at variety shows. Before you buy the new Final Draft, try Scripto for free!


You don’t need a major network time slot to afford Scripto. We’re working with productions in new media and on streaming services at a special price point. Check out this case study, where one showrunner told us Scripto saved him a full day out of every week.

Shows who know... trust Scripto

“In a world where we’re all suddenly working from home, Scripto is a godsend. It’s the fastest, easiest way for funny people to get their funny into the same script no matter where they are. It makes e-mailing FDX files back and forth look positively medieval; I honestly don’t know what we’d do without it.”

Our Cartoon President requires such a fast writing and production process. Scripto allows us to efficiently and reliably collaborate on scripts, 'gang' on jokes, rewrite, export production-friendly drafts, and more.”
