Success Stories: MAR'2 TV pilot script requested

TV pilot script requested

I tried my hand at pitching a TV pilot drama script. My first pitch I was told by the executives who read it was a bit too long and the concept 'didn't push the envelope' enough. I had never done any pitching before so this process was a bit daunting for me. I took their comments as constructive criticism and I attended one of Joey's pitch prep sessions before going back to work on it. I trimmed it down and went straight for the heart of it, no details. I even did the same with the script. I got a hit! Hopefully the pilot will live up to the pitch. I understand that ultimately it comes down to a matter of taste but I must say that Joey's pitch prep really paid off. Thanks!

Great job Helen. You listened and hung in. I had a similar experience. You get addicted when you get that first request.
