I'm setting up my pitch meetings at Banff. There's a section in your profile for "How to pitch me," which almost no one has filled in. Thom Sherman of the CW has, though, and his advice is good enough for anybody:
Be concise, please. What's the show about on a cultural/zeitgeist/human condition level? What is the hook for the series, ie. how can I market it? What is the story engine every week? How will episodes be closed-ended? Unique and fleshed-out characters, please.
That about sums it up, doesn't it?
I have a pretty decent idea for series that I can really only picture being on SPIKE or another "man" based network. I'm a no agent havin', amateur screeplay writer and wanna be novelist. However, I know the idea would be a winner if given the chance.
Heidi- Are you Canadian? The NSI Totally Television program is a good way for someone without connections to get an idea in front of decision-makers.
