Lisa and I are working on a written pitch. The two things we're working hardest on are:
- Making sure the first page grabs the reader; and
- Making sure it's clear what the show is.
It's easy enough describing the characters, the world, the backstory. What's tougher is crystallizing what the show is going to be. What's the template? What's the franchise? What happens every week?
We'll probably want to pitch the thing in person, rather than send our prose in to producers or network execs. But we need to crystallize the show on paper for ourselves, so we can pitch clearly in person.
