How To Sell Your Script

Let’s say you write a killer screenplay or create a brilliant pilot for a TV show. What’s next? Where do you go—agents, managers, producers, wealthy friends? Do you work the phone or send a well-crafted email? How the heck do you sell a script? And, perhaps more importantly: how do you forge a career in this business?

Here you will learn how to navigate the ins-and-outs of the movie and TV industry and you’ll write (and refine) the all-important pitch for your script. All under the guidance of a film and TV producer.

You won’t be told it’s impossible, or that it’s easy. You will, however, gain a realistic understanding of how the process works and how you can maximize your chances for success.
