I’m thrilled (and more than a bit fired up) to announce that Stage 32 has acquired The Happy Writers and has added its Founder, Joey Tuccio, to the Stage 32 family. Joey will serve as President of the new entity, The Stage 32 Happy Writers.
The acquisition combines the strengths of both companies by leveraging Stage 32’s online educational resources and global network of over 250,000 film, television and theater creatives with The Happy Writers expertise in offering an online experience of connecting screenwriters directly with, and providing coverage from Hollywood executives effectively creating the largest online resource for screenwriters on the web.
Joey Tuccio founded The Happy Writers back in 2011 after working as an executive for various film production companies including Bold Films (DRIVE, WHIPLASH). Joey has always had a soft spot for screenwriters and the myriad of challenges they face in trying to break into the industry. Similarly, Joey had often heard the plight of many development executives, managers, and agents in the industry who found it challenging to discover quality material and exceptional new talent. His novel idea to connect screenwriters and executives via Skype was an instant success.
To date, The Happy Writers and the Online Pitchfests in conjunction with Stage 32 has lead to over 100 screenwriters launching their careers by securing representation, being optioned or sold, or landing work writing for either television or film. The Stage 32 Happy Writers is proud to boast over 250 managers, agents, producers, directors of development, and other high-level decision makers in our stable of executives who hear pitches for the company. Many of these executives also provide coverage services (never guess who's reading your script ever again!), teach classes and labs, and offer mentoring opportunities exclusively for The Stage 32 Happy Writers.
Simply put, I have never met anyone who cares more about helping screenwriters realize their dreams like Joey. As a screenwriter myself, I understand all too well how tough it is to go it alone and to make your way in what is a very difficult and competitive business. Joey's honesty, enthusiasm, and unbridled passion for connecting writer with executive makes the whole process not only easier, but significantly more collaborative. His track record speaks for itself. I'm proud and honored to have him as a part of the Stage 32 family.
The Stage 32 Happy Writers will continue the passionate and honorable precedent Joey Tuccio set back in 2011. We will continue to take you beyond the gatekeepers to the feet of the decision makers. The best is yet to come.
