You can learn from another excellent expert at The Industry Workshops’ seminar on pitching your project to developments execs.
‘Pitch To Development Executives’ will be held Saturday, February 11th, from 9am to 12pm at the CBS Radford studios (4024 Radford Ave. Studio City, CA 91604) for just $40. It will be presented by Marla White, a “television development executive with years of experience”. She has seen a number of hit shows to success, such as “Outsiders” on WGN and “The Jim Gaffigan Show” for TV Land. As The Industry Workshops points out, White has heard hundreds of “mind numbing pitches over the years that successfully torpedoed what might have otherwise been marketable ideas, she has become determined teach writers what executives are looking for when you walk in the room.”

A note about The Industry Workshops
As always, The Industry Workshops events are a bargain that anyone interested should make a point of attending. This particular workshop is not currently being offered for online viewing, and there is something to be said for attending in person. The speakers tend to stick around and interact with attendees afterwards, which is a great way to make new contacts or get more in depth questions answered. So, if you can, I’d encourage you to attend the workshop. We’ve attended several of these workshops and the presenters are REAL people in the business. We’ve met everyone from development executives such as Marla White and motion picture distribution companies to owners of production companies. This is a great way to interface with real industry professionals in a great setting. Of course, if you can’t attend this event, they will be taped and you can watch the event online. Don’t miss out!
