I am new here and I hope people could understand what I am trying to ask but is there a specific order to the beat sheets to certain genres? I see that show beats sheets that I have read go in a different order.

The original beat sheet order is optimal. But many times some beats end up in a different order and it's okay because they still show up to get the job done. For example, in some stories the Theme Stated beat comes later, sometimes the Setup is interspersed with the Catalyst. You can adjust beats in each act as needed for your story.

However, all genres pretty much use the same Beat Sheet, which is a structure that works very well to show the transformation of characters.
