producer’s pass
 n.— «There is now an unwritten rule that writers will provide free rewrites and polishes on their own material, particularly what is known as a “producer’s pass.” That flies in the face of the WGA’s 2004 basic agreement, which pegs the rewrite minimum at $18,538 and the polish minimum at $9,274.» —“Studios pose obstacles for writers” by Tatiana Siegel Variety Feb. 8, 2008.
