Hey guys, i am a scriptwriter and I am going to write a script for a TV-Series for a TV channel in my country. It should be in Drama/Mystry/Crime genre. Do you have any big ideas for a long TV Series? Please advise... By the way, No vampire stories or Sci-Fi or supernatural ideas... think classic :)

Have you written scripts before? You're the script writer here and if I did have such a script lying around I would just sell it to a studio myself, not give it away for free.
As a script writer you should know this already but just in case, the basic ingredients are: protagonist (or protagonists, typically no more than 2), antagonists (overarching the series and/or individual episodes), an episode-by-episode conflict (what gets done each episode), an overarching conflict (series long, could be a love interest, evil plot, event, etc.), and then stuff like setting, supporting characters, motivation, and some sort of mechanic that makes it different from every other crime drama on TV.
