Introduce Yourself : Writer/Producer/Actor by Amanda Serra

Amanda Serra


I've been with Stage 32 for almost a year. My comedy pilot, Carbon Dating, made it to the semi-finals Comedy Script Writing Competition, and I've been sending in written pitches and gotten a few nibbles! I'm looking for a literary manager!

Scott Young

Congratulations on making the Semi-Finals. I just landed on The People's Pilot list of Semi-Finalists and am also looking for management. Here's hoping we both find it. Best wishes.

Amanda Serra

Thank you! Congratulations on your pilot, too! We just have to keep pounding our little round heads against all those square doors!

Jennifer Smith

Congratulations, Amanda!

Vincent Paterno

Congrats to a fellow comedy writer -- I've written two romcom features and am in the midst of a third. I also run a classic Hollywood blog, https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/.

Amanda Serra

Hi Vincent! I love those old silver screen stars! You have a famous last name! Any relation to the great Penn State coach?

Alessandro Machi

Great title.

Elaina Scott

Congrats! Good luck! :D

Jason Mirch

Congrats! Have you ever spoken to a literary manager? Have you looked into the Stage 32 mentoring program? You can speak with literary managers and get their thoughts on where to take your career. It's what I would use to get in front of managers at this point https://www.stage32.com/happy-writers/coverage/buy?id=6

Hi Jason, thanks for the guidance! I have not yet gotten to speak face to face with a lit manager, but I have sent in many written pitches and signed up for the mentor package with a production exec who has expressed interest in my pilot through my written pitch. I'm looking forward to speaking with him!

I'd like to do the verbal pitches on Stage 32, but by the time I know my schedule openings, the verbals are all gone for the managers who are looking for TV comedy. I'm still at the beginning of this fun and challenging journey!

Richard "RB" Botto

Fantastic news, Amanda. And double congratulations for being aggressive and leaving no stone unturned in your pursuits.

Amanda Serra

Thanks, Richard! I find Stage 32 an invaluable asset to navigating the industry at all levels! Thanks for creating a great resource for us!

Richard "RB" Botto

You're too kind, Amanda. Thank you for throwing some positive vibes my way this morning!

Aray Brown

Congratulations Amanda! Keep plugging away
