The Secrets of Pitching for TV

On our most recent edition of the Writers' Radio Resource, I interview Mark Simon of Sell Your TV Concept Now about the best ways to get your TV idea made into a TV show.

Listen to the interview here.

Here's what the show's about:
In a business starved for 600 channels worth of content, it is still a huge challenge to write for TV. Why? Because writers and concept creatives at large don’t have the foggiest idea how to pitch an executive.

Enter Mark Simon of Sell Your TV Concept Now. Mark has conceived, storyboarded and presented nearly 3000 TV concepts for many major networks. He now consults with creatives on how to get their ideas produced. In addition to providing (at least) 10 pitching commandments as a guideline, he stands steadfast by the belief that TV concepts hinge on the critical trifecta of character, relationships, and story. Seems simple…well it’s not.
