Pitch Laurie Cook

Laurie Cook is the Head of Development for Bigscope Films, a UK-based film and television production company. 
Laurie began his career at the BBC and Sky Productions. In 2007 he moved into script development working for companies including Brilliant Films, Working Title, Qwerty Films, and Element Pictures.
In 2010, producer Jason Newmark hired Laurie to produce the micro-budget, found-footage film, HANGAR 10. The following year, Laurie joined Bigscope Films permanently as Head Of Development and Producer with a remit to develop and produce commercially positioned, high-concept genre films and TV pilots with strong international sales appeal. Since joining Bigscope, Laurie has produced THE BANISHING, BARBARIANS, DON'T HANG UP, PRESSURE, ALIEN OUTPOST, and HANGAR 10. 

Bigscope's productions have been financed by the likes of Pinewood Pictures and sold for international distribution by Altitude Film Entertainment and Embankment Films.


Laurie is looking for horror, thriller and sci-fi feature scripts under $15MM.


Tips on pitching to Laurie Cook


  • You may only pitch ONE project per reservation. Execs are looking for projects they can develop, NOT portfolios.
  • You should have a completed script available upon request for the project you pitch.
  • Do not reach out to the executives unless directed by Stage 32. They do NOT accept unsolicited material or appreciate being cold-called/emailed by strangers.
  • Missed reservations are not refundable and will not be rescheduled.

Live Pitches

Within 15 minutes of your scheduled pitch, the exec will reach out by Skype or Phone. Your pitch session will last approximately 8 minutes.

Written Pitches

Written Pitches will be no more than 2 pages submitted as a PDF or WORD document. Any written pitch uploaded past the deadline will not be shown to the executive and will result in a non-refundable forfeiture of your pitch.


Within 3-4 weeks of your pitch session, you will receive a Pitch Scorecard on which the exec you pitched will provide pitch feedback and note if they are PASSing, or would like to REQUEST your material.

If you are requested, you will be notified via email with further instructions. The execs will have 2-3 months to review your material and note if they are PASSing, or would like a MEETING. If a meeting is requested, we will introduce you via email.

Please understand that these are working executives, and their schedules are subject to change at a moment's notice. We always strive to give you at least 24 hours of notice if a session has been cancelled, and we will recommend another executive for you to pitch your material to.
