Who's your favorite development person? You know, who give comments so on target that you want to go rewrite your script right now, for free. The ones you'd want in your writing group, except they don't write.
I'm asking about professional development people (whether currently employed or not) who have not written a produced script or episode of a show, or had a Producer or Executive Producer title. (Dev people sometimes get Co- and Associate Producer credits.)
They deserve some credit, so here goes...
Bridget Hegarty at 20th is pretty great. She's beautiful and speaks with a bit of a Valley-girl drawl, so a lot of people underestimate her.
But she's really smart and knows story very well. Respects writers and the process. And she only gives notes she truly feels will help - she won't give a note just for the sake of doing it - something a lot of execs can't help.
She'll probably be running the studio one day.
are you shitting me? running the studio? that's fucking hilarious. I'm a lit agent. I deal with Bridget all the time... yeah, she's kinda hot, but RUNNING A STUDIO! No fucking way.
