Online Pitchfest XIV: Literary Managers

Stage 32 and The Happy Writers are excited to offer a unique opportunity to our screenwriters! We have lined up some amazing literary managers who will be listening to pitches of your scripts in one-on-one pitch sessions. These pitches can be done via Skype or, if you are unable to use Skype, can be submitted as a written pitch.

Why should you pitch your script?

All screenwriters are keenly aware of the dreaded “no unsolicited material” policy enforced by most prestigious management firms. It’s not easy to get past the ivory gates without a referral. Due to our relationships, we are able to deliver to you the opportunity to sit one on one with some of the top literary managers around town each of which is looking for new writers and material! These pitches are one-on-one with the manager. You are in full control. It’s your turn to shine!

What screenwriters should be pitching?

Any Stage 32 member with a screenplay they feel is ready to share with a professional literary manager. Anyone who is interested in pursuing management or representation as a professional screenwriter.

Tips on pitching to Jennifer:

  • Make sure the emotionality of the characters are clear. That should be in the forefront of the pitch. 
  • What makes your story stand out? Highlight specific elements that gives your story distinction. 
  • Use actor comps when setting up main characters and use movie or TV comps when setting up the tone at the beginning.

Pete Letz - President/Manager, Cousin Pete Productions and Management

Pete Letz founded Cousin Pete Productions and Management in January 2012 as a platform to manage clients and produce projects in high-quality, character-driven 'genre' fare - Action, Thriller, Horror, Fantasy and Sci-Fi - with a particular emphasis on material that appeals to a global market, is flexible enough to be done either inside or outside the studio system, and allows for a transmedia approach, building expansive worlds that can translate across TV, Film, Web, Comics and Video Games.

Before forming Cousin Pete Productions and Management, Pete Letz was a development executive for director Steve Carr (PAUL BLART: MALL COP, DADDY DAY CARE) packaging and developing comedy projects in Film and TV. Prior to his work with Steve, Pete cut his teeth at RKO Pictures where he assisted in the creation of a horror-thriller slate of both original projects and those based on the historic RKO library. Pete received his Bachelor's Degree in Film from Wesleyan.
