I attended a lot of different workshops about pitching, and this is clearly the best I ever had.
Hi from Toronto, Canada!
As a feature writer, that's transitioning into episodic, I am so grateful for the season map, that breaks down how the three act structure, is broken down into episodes. Major kudos for that!
My bad - Amanda just said no pdf will be available, but the recording will be available 24-48 hours after the webinar wraps. Thank you all for your kind words, it's truly appreciated!
70 seconds of attention before people switch it off?! Jeez... 3 episodes to a long-term relationship?! It's like the 3 date rule! LOL!
Exactly this point !

taking screenshots of the slides as fast as I can
I could listen to this all day! Chris is on fire!
Hi everyone. I am a screenwriter in Alabama. I would love to connect.
Such an astounding amount of valuable information! Chris Mack is awesome! This is a great learning experience
This is great stuff...but do we know how long it is?
For those who have not seen this, it is a great resource for the Story Circle. https://www.studiobinder.com/blog/downloads/story-circle-template/
Hey, Codey S. Wilson - no need! The recording of the webinar will be available in 24-48 hours after it wraps. Nick Wray - Not sure how long it will continue, but if you have to bounce, you can watch the replay over the weekend!
I'd love to see Chris run through this with a sitcom as an example like Friends or even a kids live action series.
Thanks for posting Matt!
Very informative. Covers many aspects of writing for television but aspects particular to what Netflix is looking for those pitching to them. Solid info. Thx.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKmTUPrKNPE&t=2s&ab_channel=CodeyWilson Notecard method but in Trello
Losted internet connection :((( thanks for recording ;)
Thanks for sharing your video, Codey S. Wilson! For your links, you can either post them to your profile or post them in the Your Stage Lounge (https://www.stage32.com/lounge/promotion) for feedback or promotion.
This is more than just a class on pitching. This is a stellar structure class!
Agree Gillian Fritzsche - Chris is doing such a phenomenal job!
Great class. So much incredible information. Especially love Chris's enthusiasm and energy.
Have to bow out in a few minutes. Fantastic workshop one of the best I've ever been too. Thank you Chris, Stage 32 and the rest of you.
AHHH! The terrible blank page! LOL.
Great session!What a great exercise. Thank you.
Too bad writers are the most underrated, and under appreciated, part of the Industry. Screenwriters don't even get credits listed on most streaming sites. smh
Hola! Im a mexican filmmaker (director, script doctor, producer) and the singer from the punk eclectical orchestra DRAMA QUEERS! If you want new music for 2021, here's a gift as a pleased to meet you note: www.dramaqueers.com

Thank you for the webinar. My question is, how we can contact netflix? Do we need a agent? How hard is to make contact with the right person there?
This is a fantastic presentation, Chris! I love the scope and depth! Thanks to Stage 32 for bringing it to us.
Hi! I'm Paula Gill, a former television executive, and now, a writer and story coach. With my own writing, I focus on online serialized storytelling and audio dramas. But I'm also developing young adult and family-friendly stories for TV and animation.
I'd love to connect, and I'm happy to answer questions about any of my areas of expertise.
Brilliant! Thank you!
Wow! Chris, Stage32, thank you so, so much! This class was superb!
FANTASTIC THANK YOU!!
Amazing presentation! Thanks Chris!!
So amazing. What a gift! Thank you for this, RB, Amanda and Chris! Wowza.
So great. Thank you Chris and Stage32!
Great job, Chris Mack. Thank you for your time and expertise. Brilliant.
Thank you :)
Outstanding presentation! Thanks to all @stage32!
I'm watching Gomorra now!Great series!
I'm watching 'I May Destroy You'
No ones watching original foreign shows, like Alice in Boarderland?
Thank you! Great information!
I have learned more in the last 2 and half hours than I did in a 2 year scriptwriting Ma course. Thanks.
Thank you for your time. If you have a real solid idea, including a spec script, with a full Bible, is it better to work with a Show Runner, or pitch the concept yourself? Also, is it good to have a spec script attached to the Bible?
Don't model your content for Netflix. Make your own content good enough they want it.

Christopher Mack is an amazing instructor! Thank you, SO MUCH.
Chris, I'd be honored if you could look at my own Netflix story webinar: https://actfourscreenplays.com/my-services/webinars/screenwriting-secret...Thank you! Amazing presentation!
I just finished watching "Normal people". Great show
CHRIS, will you watch my two minute proof of concept trailer for my show!!! :) - (worth a shot) - I made it in hopes of strategically starting a conversation.
Would Netflix give a chance to a first time writer/showrunner/director?
Thank you for this amazing webinar! Chris is a fantastic instructor!
Does Netflix Amsterdam only focus on European/Dutch content? Or how does it fit into the Netflix family?
How do we connect to schedule pitches with production executives? Is there a good strategy? Must we have representation in order to secure a meeting?
Man this has been a great presentation so far!
Thanks a lot Chris !
I was only able to attend the first 90mins... this was great, and needs another look with some note taking (plus I want to see the rest of the presentation). Where can I find the posted video once available?
This was absolutely amazing! Big love from the UK.
I know asking Chris to watch my trailer was dumb, and seemingly arrogant, but I thought, "How could I get someone to read my pilot?" So, I shot the 2-minute proof of concept trailer.
Here is a good resource for your Bible that I have been using. https://www.studiobinder.com/tv-show-bible-examples/
Chris is so direct and dynamic with his info.
Hey, Mauricio Niebla! Great question! I think you can tell from the Q&A with Amanda and Christopher that that is not an easy, straight-forward answer, HOWEVER, Stage32 has a TON of resources to help you continue to shape up your script and pitch to make it available to Netflix. The most direct route is to pitch it on one of our pitch sessions: https://www.stage32.com/scriptservices/pitch-sessions
Keep in mind that these pitch sessions are meant to be educational first, and an opportunity to connect with executives second. It is up to the executive whether or not they request more information.
They said to give them up to 48 hours to process the recording Dave Brynlund and it will be available via, I think, education or resources in your Stage32 profile.
Thank you so much for this, Chris! Your time and knowledge are greatly appreciated!!
According to Chris Mack, we do not need a finished pilot script to pitch to Netflix but we do need an agent or manager in order to pitch to Netflix and the agent and or manager will need a finished script.
Great webinar today. Lots of interesting perspectives about stories around the world.
Any agents on here?
Hi! I had to leave the webinar early because I had a class, but I was wondering where the recorded video will be posted? Learning from Chris was such a privilege! Thank you.
Is there a way to send a novel I wrote (published and awarded) to Netflix?
This has been absolutely wonderful! Thank you to Chris, Amanda and R.B. Great content!!
In a Bible, is it better to focus on three to five main characters, or list as many characters as possible, which if their stories were expanded, could have an impact on the story?
Hey Chris! Question about IP: what are your thoughts on taking a script and flipping it into your own IP (i.e. a graphic novel) in order to get some hype?
As a follow-up, one of the best benefits of Stage32 is CHOOSING who reads your script, whether for script coverage (https://www.stage32.com/scriptservices/coverage) which gives you written notes or script consulting (https://www.stage32.com/scriptservices/consulting) which gives you a one-on-one call for feedback. This is a fantastic value to get that feedback since a typical "Hollywood Meeting" to pitch your script would just give you a "no" or a "tell me more".
BONUS: ANY script that gets a double recommendation on coverage (recommend the writer and the script) will be added to our monthly LookBook that is circulated to all our executives! What a Win-Win! You get feedback and the opportunity to reach industry executives!
Will Netflix take a one-season show?
Amazing, S32! Really! Chris M. of Netflix could've probably made a living as a prominent screenwriting instructor in Hollywood; he's certainly out-chalkboards two prestigious ones I’ve had the privilege of receiving writing tutelage under. Yet, Chris chose to aid writers and content creators in submitting effectively to his parent company so their stories can be heard. No doubt, Chris is someone who adores his distribution network first and foremost, yet he also loves writing and is quickly becoming the screenwriter’s hero.
Love listening to people who know how story works!
Just want to say thank you. I'm closer than I thought on my series that I've developed but I also see where I need to polish so thank you.
An absolutely impeccable presentation! Thoughtful, thorough and most importantly entertaining! Thanks Chris, Amanda, RB et al!
Thank you VERY much
Thank you so much, Chris! That was awesome! And thanks to the stage32 team! thumbs up
Brilliant! thank you, Chris!
Thanks so much Chris, that was brilliant!!
This was my first Stage 32 webinar, but I've watch a few from others and I have to say Chris - this was amazing. You're a great presenter, I love your story, and just thank you so much!
Fantastic! Thanks so much
This was fantastic and very informational, thank you!
Thank you so much, Chris! That was quite inspiring and very interesting!
Great webinar. Lead it all out in a clear, entertaining way.
best presentation I ever saw about pitching!
This webinar has been incredible! Very insightful and inspirational :) Thank you Chris, Amanda and R.B. for giving us this opportunity.
Great lecture, heard a lot, but this one was clearly the best. So well structured and focused. Hope to see you soon in Berlin.
Hi everyone! Great webinar - thanks Chris

Really an incredible presentation!
Really enjoyed the presentation, thank you.
It was great - the only thing was I had an actors recording from 8 to 9 so I missed the critical middle bit! I understand it was recorded but do you have to be a paid subscriber to watch it again?
Thank you so much for putting it on though! If only I had managed to see it all! Great presentation!
Awesome presentation! Thanks Chris, Amanda and RB!!
This was such an amazing webinar, I can't thank the Stage 32 team and Chris enough! I learnt so much about screenwriting and pitching from a refreshing perspective. Totally invaluable and inspiring :)
Wonderful webinar, it was so great to learn the structure of a pitch. Thanks Chris, Amanda and Richard!
Thank you RB, Amanda and Chris - that was a great breakdown and a straightforward and inspiring webinar. Great to have someone in the know map out avenues for the amateurs, and the creative juices are definitely flowing again. That was the extra motivator needed to really get going in 2021! Awesome work, thanks.
Chris Mack is amazing. So much energy and relevant information about what Netflix is looking for in a TV series and how to write and pitch the pilot. I don't see Sarah Gabrielle Baron on this lounge. I do hope she watches this as I believe it would be very helpful as she works on her TV Series that we gave feedback on last Monday.
I'm an author and screenwriter from Guelph, Ontario. Loved the webinar. Learned a lot. I write urban fantasy, paranormal, crime thrillers, science fiction. Would love to connect!
Chris Mack and the webinar he hosted was one of a kind. Very informative, very insightful, entertaining, and engaging. The best one I've been a part of.
