Lead with your latest script, or whatever got them interested. But then tell them you're also working on something new. Then a month later, whip out the new script - which is just an old script with a new date - and you're good to go.

The truth is no script is ever really dead, but at least get them to think it's new and not some dead horse from years ago that everyone passed on.

Even scripts that have been send out before, I have had sent out again with a new date and new title. No-one knows anything.

Don't do this. Your reps are your partners, not your employees, nor your bosses. Discuss your old scripts with your rep and be honest with yourself and them as to their quality if they are early efforts. Share the loglines with your rep, discuss them, and there might be one to freshen up and try and sell.
