I'm writing a script that involves an interview with a person a la 60 minutes or Behind the Music. I'm a little confused if the "fill pieces" should be formatted as "recorded" or "prerecorded" in its slugline.

Alexa Jones interviews John Baker.

                         Lets talk about your greenhouse.

They laugh.

                         Sure, lets.
                                                    CUT TO: INT. GREENHOUSE - DAY (RECORDED)

Alexa and John walk through John's futuristic greenhouse.

Would that slugline be in the right ballpark?

    Recorded makes little sense for a script. It will all be recorded. V/O or V.O. for voice over is used much more.

After CUT TO: the next scene heading should be on its own line.

                                                                       CUT TO:


I'd say "(PRE-RECORDED)" instead of "(RECORDED)".

After the clip, I think you need a BACK TO SCENE to return to the live interview.
