In the seminar, "Seven Steps to Selling Your Show," we'll be talking about the seven areas of an effective television pitch... and how to put them together successfully. We'll also have a Q&A to talk about pitching, TV, and the book itself.

So if you're in L.A. next weekend, please come... I'd love to see you there!
