The Stage 32 Happy Writers offers one-on-one online pitch and written pitch sessions, screenwriting coverage, consultations with executives, and education through classes and labs. Our goal is not only to provide you with access to executives who can make a difference in your career, but to offer education and information designed to make your pitching abilities, actual pitches and scripts stronger.
Stage 32 Happy Writers has spent years cultivating relationships with over 400 executives worldwide that work exclusively with us to help writers perfect their pitches and hone their craft. These executives include managers, agents, directors of development, producers and other industry executives.
For our pitching services, we interview all our executives beforehand to find out exactly what type of material they are looking for. The mission is to connect the executive with the writer and the material best suited for their needs.
For screenwriting coverage, we are proud to be the only company to offer coverage where you choose the executive based on genre or medium. For example, if you have a comedy feature you’d like studio notes on, you will be able to choose from a list of executives who work in the comedy genre. The same holds true for our consulting services. Again, you choose the executive.
Due to the tireless work from the Stage 32 Happy Writers staff, over 200 of our writers have moved on to be signed, sold, optioned, put into development or staffed as a result. You don't have to take our word for it, you can read more here, or watch videos from our writers here, here or here.

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.
In 2013, The Happy Writers joined forces with Stage 32 to host a number of Online Pitchfests giving screenwriters the opportunity to pitch to a variety of executives over the course of a single weekend to gain educational and informational feedback on their pitch and scripts. The sessions were an instant success. In April of 2014, Stage 32 acquired The Happy Writers and named Joey President of the (now titled) Stage 32 Happy Writers - a division of Stage 32.
To date, over 200 screenwriters have secured representation, have had their work sold, optioned or put into development or been staffed through the services offered by The Stage 32 Happy Writers. That’s a fact of which we’re extremely proud. The Stage 32 Happy Writers is equally proud to boast over 400 managers, agents, producers, directors of development, and other high-level decision makers in our stable of executives who work with us to help educate writers by providing an informational scorecard and feedback to all writers to assure that their pitches and screenplays are honed and of the highest order. Many of these executives also provide studio coverage notes and coverage (never guess who's reading your script ever again!), teach classes and labs, and offer mentoring and consulting 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 not only helps make the process easier and less nerve wracking, 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. We will continue to provide you with access, information and education so that your pitch is honed and your script is the best it can be. Our goal is to give every writer the access, opportunity, education and information necessary to best realize their dreams.
