Default What actually happens when you go in to pitch a movie idea to a studio?

I've only ever written on spec, but now am going to to pitch an idea. I'm told I'll only have about 15 minutes. What should I have prepared? How much detail? The producer I'm working with seems to want me to have the whole script more or less worked out. Thanks for any guidance.

Extremely helpful - thanks! Anyone know, with respect to comedy pitches specifically, how much detail is expected on specific set pieces?
