Re: WGA Firings

I posed this very question to Adam Kolbrenner in the last episode of my podcast.

Short answer: It probably depends on the rep, but overall WGA-ATA situation doesn't change anything, at least for...

Re: Adam Kolbrenner

Hey, thanks Satriales! Glad the podcast was helpful to you. I can haz 5 star iTunes rating? (or wherever you listened to/downloaded the podcast from) I only ask because more good ratings definitely...

Re: WGA Firings - is this the worst time to try to find a manager/agent

It's still early yet, so no one really knows.

For managers, it might be a little harder since many of them are extra busy during staffing season since they don't have agent partners working with...

Re: Adam Kolbrenner

That's right, Ice... man. I am dangerous. Sorry, I had to do it. Thanks for listening to the podcast. If you want to throw a 5 star rating on iTunes for us, I won't turn it down. ;)

But I do...

Re: Sci Fi Managers?

While submitting to a rep who has an obvious proclivity for a specific genre (ex: reps numerous prominent sci-fi writers) does seem like a good idea, it's possible that their roster may be filled...

Re: Staffing TV Writers: an agent question

This may all be moot, since the WGA/ATA kerfuffle, but if you had a specific connection to a showrunner, your agent would likely have no problem submitting you to that show, even if the showrunner...

Re: Flat Out Rude?

^This is a good answer. I've worked at an agency and can report the same.

Also, I spoke about it on the podcast recently with lit manager John Zaozirny. He hates cold calls. I don't remember exactly...

Re: Is not living in LA or NY a dealbreaker for managers & agents?

Features - Yes, it's possible. If you've got a brilliant spec feature, reps don't really care where you live, so long as you're willing to travel to LA as needed for the occasional round of meetings...

Re: Adam Kolbrenner

Most submissions, even ones that Adam requests directly will go to an assistant or junior manager there first. I have no idea if they accept snail mail queries any more, but they are really good...

Re: Query Conundrum

The "silent pass" is very normal in the industry. It doesn't mean it's polite, but it happens to everyone at some point. Some people are good about responding to everything and others not so much....

Re: Reputable agents/managers charging a fee to read

I totally understand.



Hey, thanks Friday! We've got a new episode (with lit manager Chris Cook) on Monday and I'm recording more next week to go up later this month. Thanks for listening and the...

Re: Reputable agents/managers charging a fee to read

Hey Scripto,
First off, thanks for watching/listening to the podcast. It's much appreciated.

Second, I TOTALLY get what you're saying. I've known Scott for a few years now and honestly do feel that...

Re: Will an agent or manager sign a writer based off one script?

Yes, Andrew's given you the scoop.

(BTW, Andrew is the most highly recommended script analyst by S&S listeners. Not a plug, just the truth. Well kind of a plug, because he's a good guy, but an...

Re: Will an agent or manager sign a writer based off one script?

The most important thing is having at least one GREAT piece of material. Ideally you'd have more, at least an original spec pilot AND a feature, but one AMAZING script can be enough to get you...

Re: Potential Manager Wants 3 Year Contract

Three years is a long time. There is generally no regulation of management companies like there is for talent/literary agencies, so I suppose they can write in whatever they want, but I'd be...

Re: Can you query agents with a TV spec??

As Joe said (above), you'll need a piece of original material for any rep to have interest in you. The only thing spec episodes of an established show are good for is contests and fellowships. Reps...

I can also confirm this from my contacts there. Nothing really changes except JC leaving the company and a name change (likely announced in a couple weeks). Not sure about the office location, but...

Re: When querying, worth mentioning contact at a Paid Cable Network?

No, I doubt that would help unfortunately. One potential meeting does not really interest most reps.

What would help is if your close contact read and loved your pilot and reached out to an agent...

Re: Are you looking for a manager?

I'm pretty sure both do. I think both have had more success in feature sales up to this point, but everyone is looking for great pilots. There is supposed to be 400 hours of...

Re: Are you looking for a manager?

Which one said that?? If you listened (or read it? - a podcast?) perhaps you can be a little more specific?

I don't recall either one saying there was basically "no way on the face of the Earth"...

Re: Format for email queries?
