View Full Version : Suggestions for reaching Mark Burnett Prod. or C. Riggs?
07-13-2004, 01:01 PM
Please help -- I am a small (non-Hollywood!) PR firm in Chicago with a client that has a big, serious, remarkable concept for a reality show.
The best info I have is that Riggs is Burnett's agent; I can't find a way to reach either except Riggs through Creative Artists Agency.
Can ideas be submitted directly thru CAA; and will it reach Riggs?
Does anyone have any advice for how to reach Burnett?
Thanks a million for any thoughts on this.

If that doesn’t work, go to The Futon Critic (www.thefutoncritic.com/cg...&type=new) (http://www.thefutoncritic.com/cgi/gofuton.cgi?action=charts&network=abc&type=new))
and click on each network – a chart comes up for new shows with the names of the producers. Contact everybody who has a new reality show on the air and try to pitch your concept.
Finally, if you can’t get past the assistants, go to a site like Craig’s List and contact people looking for reality ideas to pitch – you will have to use your best judgment as to whether they are legit or not. For example: losangeles.craigslist.org...34382.html (http://losangeles.craigslist.org/tfr/36034382.html)
Hope that helps!
