It sure pays to pay attention to the small bios accompanying the names of the various producers and managers hearing pitches: I caught the history of projects undertaken by a terrifically talented producer and concluded from that info that he might gravitate to material in one of my screenplays and so pitched to him..... with great results. Indeed, digest the bios and see if there's a common thread that could make your pitch a natural fit.

Awesome Michael! That's definitely a smart strategy when pitching!

Laurie Ashbourne

Couldn't agree more -- also pays to look even more into their slate via sites like imdb, it's absolutely crucial to do your due diligence even if it's just to strike up conversation.

Emma J Steele

Congratulations, Michael and I completely agree. I not only read the bios but check out IMDB too and google them to see what they're up to! Good luck with the request.
