Pitching Series Over Phone Tips?
Later this week I'll be calling a production executive to try to pitch a pilot I helped create. This is mostly at the cocreator's suggestion.
I haven't called pitched anything over the phone before [or heck, even called anyone this important before]. I've always just emailed, talked in person, or used submission fields.
Do you have any tips on pitching series over the phone? or articles about it?
Apparently, as my cocreator said when he gave me the number, it's the executive's 'personal number'. That's probably not much of a guarantee that an assistant won't answer it - but it feels like more pressure this way.
I don't have a rep, or any previous connection to the executive, so I'm wondering if there's a good way to keep them from hanging up right away.
