Default New interview with 5 managers on managing writers...

Here's the link to a roundtable style discussion on what managers at Underground, Art/ Work, Protocol, Abstract and Kaplan/Perrone had to say about the industry, their role within it, and working with writers in general.

Enjoy. Hope it brings interesting discussion and debate.

EJ

I think I like Engelson's approach more than the others.

EJ:

Thank you for bringing the article to our attention.

There is a great phrase one of them used that I am going to keep in the back of my mind when trying to convince others of my vision... Or keep their vision from ruining my scripts

Interesting and informative interview with these managers. Thanks for posting it.

As I was reading I found out how little I knew of a managers function. Being a noob, that's to be expected, I'm sure. And, am impressed at the job they do as described by those in the interview.

But, I do recall reading others here on DD mentioning that managers have limits to what they may do, such as not to encroach upon an agents domain. Agents are licensed, managers are not, State laws apply, etc.

Reading that interview it seemed to me they are taking stuff all the way forward and up to a sale. I'd think somewhere along the timeline, an agent would have to come in to the picture.

So, as a noob, would appreciate it if someone might take the time to enlighten us as to the bounds of their function as compared to those of an agent.

I'm an outsider too, but I THINK what happens is that when the time comes to close a deal the manager - who cannot legally close the deal on behalf of his client - brings in an entertainment attorney.

This was interesting, but I wish we could get the same from a group of TV managers.

Well. Goes to show how there's certainly more than one approach in the business.
