How Stage 32 Turned A Dream Into A Reality!

I have been working on my teleplay for my TV Rom-Com, NUMBER 54, since 2004. Yes, it’s been twenty years of working on and polishing the Pilot script. I would sit at my desk and write a little, scrap it, and start over. I felt something was missing, but what was it? After twenty years of writing and rewriting, I finally figured it out. It was too long and it wasn’t funny enough. So as a member of STAGE 32 since 2015, I decided to write my best rendition and pitch it to someone who could help fin...

Stage 32 Success Story: Zero To Zealful In Under Six Months!

Last year, I snagged a 2nd Rounder badge at the Austin Film Festival with my script Kira and Henry and sat in on a roundtable led by Larry Postel, a non-represented screenwriter living in Dallas. Larry’s story is unique in that he has managed to have four original spec screenplays purchased, produced, and released since 2020. Larry told us his secret; he sent out query emails after doing lots of research on who would be a good producer for his scripts. He didn't have a manager and I had thought...

Executive & Screenwriter Wrap Production On Pilot After Connecting Through Stage 32!

So, we're on set filming the pilot episode. On the monitor, we're watching a corporate meeting devolve into a hilarious gunfight.

My absolute favorite offering from Stage 32 is their consulting service. It allows me to interact with a writer in a mo...
