Here's the situation. I am producing a web series I have written but it has gone into development hell. Because producing is like herding cats. So I showed it to a reputable producer who loved it. Now I've got a potential deal going on with him as he is interested in optioning it. He wants to "partner" with me and have me fork up some cash. Which I don't think is a good idea. Instead I want a clean deal. How much should I ask?
