HelloThis is Samuel. You will want to consider first having your work registered. You can do that with Writers Guild Of America for a fair price. It will protect your work from copyright infringement. Here is a link to WG West but you can also use WG East. It makes no difference.
Once your work is registered you will get a receipt back for the same. You also may want to consider contacting a director, producer, publisher directly before you send as most will not take an "unsolicited" manuscript. And in that regard, I suggest you would want them to agree to a Non Disclosure before you submit it even with it being registered.
A non disclosure simple says that any information revealed to them in this regard or in regard to your writing project Shall never be disclosed to anyone without your written permission. Also when you submit you will want to note that your work is registered with the Writer's Guild
