FAQ

Q: What will I get out of my Evaluation?

A: You get a clear plan of action on how to move forward with your idea based on our expert assessment of its strengths and weaknesses, plus how to sharpen and target it to potential buyers. We will share with you the insights we gather throughout the year from our meetings with top network and production company execs.

“I really appreciate your thorough and honest assessment of my pilot, your identification of its strengths and issues, and helpful strategies for tweaking, re-packaging and marketing my concept. Most appreciated were your identification of issues I would have been completely unaware of, though it was also great to hear your perspective (and broadcasters’ perspectives, based on your vast experience) on things I was aware of but might not have known to what extent these items would be deal-makers/breakers. Your knowledge about specific things certain broadcasters would be looking for was also incredibly helpful.

Your experienced eyes and willingness to share this invaluable experience with me was truly a gift, and I am so grateful.
Thanks so much!”- Molly Conole, Creative Producer of Ms. Mola’s Make-ola!
