Hey, folks—

Just wanted to let you know,
I’m hosting and moderating Mediabistro’s “Pitch Slam next Monday, October 5… and for
anyone working on an idea for the next “Royal Pains,” “30 Rock,” or “Kitchen
Nightmares
,” this is an incredible opportunity!

Here’s how it works: we
bring in a panel of TV industry experts… you show up and pitch your idea to the
panel… the panel gives you feedback on your pitching technique, your
presentation, your idea, etc.

You also get to watch
everyone else’s pitch—and they get to watch yours—so it’s a terrific way to
learn about pitching, and what people respond to, even when you’re not in the
hot seat.

It’s been a while since
the last “Pitch Slam,” and we’ve got an incredible panel lined up…Jill Young, a creative executive at The
Littlefield Company
(former NBC president Warren Littlefield’s production
company with ABC Studios); Alan Moore, an alternative/reality TV agent at APA;
and BJ Ford, a TV literary manager/producer at Roar Entertainment, one of the
hottest new management firms in Hollywood.

We’ll be doing pitches for
all kind of TV: comedy, drama, reality, and everything in between.So if you’re interested, here’s the
scoop… hope to see you there!

PERFECTING THE TV PITCH
