You have a great idea for a TV show, but how do you sell it? In this intimate conversation, writer Rafael Agustín (JANE THE VIRGIN) guides us on how to successfully pitch a series that captures the attention of production companies, studios executives, and network buyers. We discuss how he develops a story and characters that can sustain multiple episodes, get tips on how to deliver a compelling, persuasive pitch and review the materials you’ll need to prepare. After our conversation, we see the suggested strategies at work as several members of the audience practice pitching their show ideas.
