Default TV pitch

hey guys-

I wrote a 14 page pitch deck for a TV series that a Network read and apparently loves.

The closest thing to it is probably this:

My document is mostly info on characters, world, tone. I have a one-page overview of the story. Definitely not a beat-by-beat breakdown.

The producers and I have a call next week with the Network (I'm on the East Coast)

I am trying to figure out what the best strategy is. Specifically: do I go in with a super specific angle and have a fully-loaded pitch prepared? e.g. know the beats of my pilot or even the overall arc of the 1st season? Or do I treat it more as a "chat" in which we explore possibilities together and I demonstrate flexibility? (as of today I don't have a beat breakdown though I could probably cook something up before the call)

I am just concerned that by going the "fully-loaded" route they might get put off by some of my most audacious ideas.

I guess it's the equivalent of going on a date and being a tiny bit reserved, in order to score a follow-up date (in this case them commissioning an outline and a pilot), as opposed to laying out my personality much more openly and banking on the fact that my date may or may not love who I really am...
