Default Robb Entertainment Group

Out of Rosedale, NY. Anyone else dealt with this bunch of winners? Here's my actual email correspondence with them, verbatim:


Subject: Shannon Edwards - illiterate wannabe writer

Invitation to call? WHAT!!?!!!?!!!!!!?!!!? Are you really that stupid?

Also, the character description page is PERFECTLY fine. You're just clearly illiterate.

You sound like an idiot so we're just going to block you now.

Goodbye idiot! Good luck going ANYWHERE in this industry!

Jessica, block this wannabe from EVER contacting us again.

Then why put a phone number in all your responses along with an invitation to call?

Also, the character description page of the pdf was unreadable.

Maybe the ad wasn't clear about phone calls. Also, you should definitely respond a lot faster than that.

Prompt replies are greatly appreciated!

This gig sounds perfect for me. In the last six years, I've written ten screenplays
and three TV pilots (one an hour-long drama with elements of dark humor, the other two
half-hour sitcoms), with more in the works, all adaptations from works originated by
others.

I've attached three scripts: One feature (EOTF), one sitcom (Little Company), and one drama (Creative Financing).

If you have any questions or would like to see further samples please contact me at XXX.XXX.XXXX
or shannon.edwards@XXXXXXX.com. Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Shannon Edwards

Ha! Wow.

You know, I think I have heard of this place. If this is the same company I'm thinking about, my friend interned there ages ago and loved it. It chiefly produces commercials. Or did.

Unless that's the "Bobb" Entertainment group I'm thinking of. That could be it. Maybe. I'm confused.

They're near Syracuse, NY. The absolute mecca of filmed entertainment and professionalism.

Losers. Sorry you had to go through that.
Maybe they hired that deranged sorority girl to answer their emails. Their website is headache-inducing and a straight up cautionary tale against 5-Hour Energy drinks. "WE'RE UBER SOCIAL" ...yes you are, and so good at it.

I think I really dodged a bullet on this one. I can't imagine being able to work with him. In fact, I can't imagine anyone being able to work with him.

For a good laugh (or cry), check out Robb Entertainment Group's "Seeking Writers for TV Pilots" ad listed yesterday in the Jobs & Opportunities section. Such arrogance. Such disdain for writers.

Yeah. Any company that is post ads on Craigslist for "experienced television pilot writers" isn't going to be a good first step to get into the industry. The e-mail responses just prove it.

Agreed. Any way to flag it?
