ACT 1: DEVELOP YOUR CONCEPT (expanded versions/links for more reading)

  • Get motivated to pursue and finally achieve your TV show dream

Do you have an idea for a television show or maybe several ideas that you’ve been playing around with but haven’t committed to seeing become reality? Purchasing this TV Pitch Kit is your first and BEST commitment to finally starting down that path to GET IT DONE.

Our GETTING STARTED CD prepares you for what’s ahead and helps keep you motivated to stay on the path to a produced television show!

  • Turn your idea in to a marketable concept

Is your idea in any kind of acceptable form that networks or producers would take seriously? What do we mean by ‘acceptable form?’ How do I take my idea from where it exists now to something that is not only marketable, but will be instantly recognized as professional, original, and HOT?

Our DEVELOP YOUR SHOW CONCEPT CDs (Part 1 and 2) walk you through the steps you need to follow for your show presentation to be professionally accepted for SERIOUS CONSIDERATION.

  • Create unforgettable and cast-able characters

Does your show have characters or a host that television viewers would invite into their homes on a regular basis – who would grow on you and make you intimately concerned with what happens to them next? Are they memorable from the first time you describe them? Do they live and breathe and talk like real people you can either relate to or recognize?

Our tips on creating a production bible will provide a questionnaire that will guide you to fully flesh out your characters so they live on the page and in your pitch. So that when you talk about them, network executives or producers will create living and compelling images of them in their own minds, and be immediately excited about prospects for casting your show with A-LIST actors or actresses to portray them. Or to have clear guidelines how to select reality show casts that SIZZLE WITH CONFLICT.

  • Build an irresistible TV treatment and TV show bible

Do you know what happens in the 10th episode of your television show? In the second season premiere? What the potential FIVE-SEASON arc of your show might be? Do you have a TV SHOW bible that covers all the characters, their back stories, and potential episodes so writers hired for the show can stick to YOUR VISION? These are types of questions network executives and producers NOW want to hear to have confidence your show is marketable and HAS LASTING POTENTIAL for a long run or for syndication.

Our HOW TO CREATE A PRODUCTION TREATMENT CD shows you how to further develop and flesh out your TV show potential for anyone to see and understand. It’s the backup material to your live pitch that can help CLOSE THE DEAL.

  • Talk like a pro with crucial insider terminology

Are you aware of the terminology network executives and producers are accustomed to hearing or reading in a pitch that gives them a short-cut understanding of the full potential of your show? That immediately clues them you are not some novice, but a professional who understands the arena they are getting into and is ready to employ the proper tools of the trade to win your contest?

By the time you finish going through this kit, ALL THOSE TERMS will be second nature to you. You will not only TALK LIKE A PRO, you will THINK LIKE A PRO in the language and style that all the most successful writers and producers employ. If you ever thought television was a game of insiders, know that you will BECOME AN INSIDER before you are through with this path.

Identify prime pitch targets from more than 628 TV networks

Do you know what networks or cable stations are the best fit for your TV show or concept? There are more than 628 stations with schedules to fill out there now between the cable, prime and satellite network channels. But which ones make the most sense for your project, and which ones are just wastes of time?

With our guidance, you will begin to identify the potential markets for your show and you will be able to more clearly zero in on the networks that have the most potential for your show to be pitched and to succeed. We will also identify the television conferences where you can actually meet executives from these networks, and, in our more advanced packages, bring you along to pitch your fully developed concept at these conferences.

That is the goal of this path. That is the end of the rainbow for this journey you are embarking on. And this TV Pitch Kit is your first big step to getting there.

BONUS! Includes exclusive interview with South Park creators Trey Parker & Matt Stone!

Kenny is dead! You know the show, you know the creators, you know how successful they’ve become. They even had a play on Broadway that was nominated for 14 Tony Awards (“Book of Mormon”) Is nothing sacred? Fortunately not. And neither are the insights and secrets they pass on in this exclusive interview on putting a hit series together for television.

ACT 2: PREPARE YOUR MATERIALS (expanded version)

  • Gather key insights from actual show bibles and treatment templates from ALL television show formats – Reality, Comedy, Animation or Talk/li>

Have you ever seen a TV show bible or treatment from an existing television series? It may surprise you: What’s in there, and what’s not. Did you know that reality shows still have act break formats and plotlines? Or that a talk show has a structure and a theme?

The best way to understand how your own TV show treatment or bible should look is to examine ones from shows that have already successfully made it to the air on television. We provide several examples that will illuminate the process and the content of these all-important documents.

  • Put together visually-compelling one-sheet sales pieces

Are you aware that many show ideas either generate their best interest or are quickly rejected JUST FROM THE ONE-SHEET? If you don’t have a compelling visual or tease or tag line to INSTANTLY brand your show in the mind of a producer or network executive, you are missing a key piece of what helps sell a TV show.

We not only provide prime examples of one-sheets and how they can visually and verbally stimulate IMMEDIATE INTEREST in a show, but we can even have one prepared for you based on your guidance if you so desire. Our goal is to NEVER LEAVE you without the immediate tools or access to those tools necessary for you to deliver your best possible TV pitch package.

  • Gain visual strengths from storyboard leave-behinds

Have you visually thought out how the action or design of your show might appear or play out? If your show is a cartoon, or a kids’ show, or even an action drama, can you see how a sequence of the show on storyboard might better help a network executive or producer visualize the look, pace, style and action of your show. Or maybe it just helps you to better understand those elements when you pitch.

Our sample storyboard leave-behinds are great ways to start thinking about the visual look of your own show and the types of framing, action and design that bring it to life in your mind so you can bring it to life in the minds of your potential buyers.

  • Assemble every tool you need to bulletproof your pitch

Are you sure you have everything you need to walk into a live pitch and be prepared for any request to SEE SOMETHING ON PAPER? Pitch meetings can often be more about whether the network executive or producer sees you as a producer they can work together or do business with … and the written back up materials you provide help CLOSE THE DEAL. They show how well you’ve thought out every angle of the show and how you yourself are an ESSENTIAL PART OF THAT PACKAGE.

Our WHAT TO BRING TO A PITCH CD will thoroughly prepare you for whatever essential materials you should prepare to back up your pitch.

BONUS! Includes exclusive interview with Fox Family Channel’s Joel Andryc, and Saban! (more info here)

ACT 3: PERFECT YOUR PITCH (expanded version after link)

  • Protect your show with included copyright and WGA forms

Are you worried your show idea will be stolen if you talk about it or pitch it to anyone? And how will you ever sell it if you don’t? It’s a Catch-22 that seems to snare and concern many of our clients. “If my show is so great, what’s to stop someone I tell it or show it to from just taking it, or changing it slightly enough to appear as their own?”

These fears can be overcome once you know simple ways to protect your idea for either FIVE years with a WGA registration, or 75 years with a U.S. Copyright. And we include those forms for you to use at your convenience. But we also understand how the industry works and how working and pitching to legitimate companies, networks and executives carry other degrees of protection you may not be aware of. We can even reveal how to protect just the TITLE of your show if that worries you. And we can coach you on how to make your participation in the creative process and production of your show VITAL to the success of the show, so they would never even CONSIDER going forward without you.

  • Plan your attack with the 50 Greatest Pitch Strategies of All Time

Did you know there are actual mapped out and scripted STRATEGIES for delivering a professional pitch? These are simple formulas for punching key elements of your idea, or even overcoming objections. And what could be better than actually reading them? How about actually HEARING them?

Our PITCH LIKE A PRO CDs 1&2 contain more than FIFTY PROVEN sample pitch strategies you can adapt to your idea or pitch to make it stronger and more rejection proof. There are so many mistakes and pitfalls that can easily be avoided if you know WHEN and WHERE to step with your presentation. Listen how to stay on track with these effective pitch strategies.

  • Understand critical network submission guidelines

How do you know when you are barking up the wrong tree with your idea pitching it to a certain network? Is that reality show really a good fit for The Cartoon Network? Is your idea too narrow for broadcast television, or too broad for a particular cable network? Are you wasting your time running down the wrong leads in the wrong direction?

Our sample submission guidelines from dozens of networks show you exactly the type of programming each TYPE of cable or broadcast network is looking for, and what types of materials they expect to accompany any pitch. They help you better target and tailor your idea to the buyer audience who makes the most sense and gives you the best chance to close the deal. These guidelines are priceless information to save you time, energy and frustration.

  • Draft email, cover letter, and phone scripts from sample templates

Are you having great difficulty getting read, or even getting to first base with a company or producer? You’ve already attempted contact either through email, phone or letter, but you’re getting nowhere. Why? Without an agent or a manager or a known referral, how can you ever get through? And what are the four most important elements a query letter soliciting interest from a producer or executive can contain? And what’s the best way to get that letter past the assistants?

Drafting the great pitch letter, email or phone message might just be one of the most valuable weapons you ever have in your sales arsenal, so put your best foot forward with our guidance and samples. A great query letter is like live bait in a sea of potential huge catches. You need a good bite to get through the door, so learn how to draft a letter that not only gets you through the door, but sets you up for maximum interest once you’re inside. Our sample email prompts and advice on our interview CDs show you how.

  • Find how to answer the 5 questions your live pitch must cover

You finally get a meeting, but do you know the FIVE key questions your live pitch must cover to seriously be considered? Have you covered all the bases and anticipated all the objections that lay in wait to pounce upon your idea and knock you off balance at the exact wrong moment? It’s a scary proposition, but one that’s easily overcome if you KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.

Our PITCH LIKE A PRO CDs 1&2 prepare you for the key questions an executive or producer will grill you on IF you have already failed to meet their expectations. But if you KNOW what to expect, you will not only deflect any interruptions that might unsettle you or throw you off your game, but PROVE how carefully you have already thought out the issues that concern them most and overcome their best ammo to reject your idea. Go in armed and bulletproof with our guidance.

  • Discover the ideal TV conferences to pitch your show
  • Find out how film and script festivals build good buzz

Did you know exactly how many conferences are running around the country and the world each year presenting opportunities for you to MEET THE PLAYERS who buy ideas and get TV series on the air? Do you understand WHICH ONES ARE THE BEST FIT for your genre of show, or HOW TO FOLLOW UP once you make a contact at one of these conferences? Working a conference is like a carefully choreographed dance that can have spectacular results if you know all the right steps, or can land you flat on your face.

If you still have questions you need answered, read on…

Q: Do I really need an entire course? I just want help on my pitch.
A: The best pitcher in the world has nothing to say unless she’s got a show to pitch that’s unique, well thought out and gets people excited. We designed our home study course to guide you step-by-step through the development, pitch, and sale of your own TV show.

Q: How quickly can I institute what you recommend in these courses?
A: That depends on how much time and money you can devote to your show. Realistically, you could zip through these courses, revise your materials, and be ready to pitch in about two months or less.

Q: Will this package help me land pitch meetings?
A: Yes. We cover how to land pitch meetings without an agent, where to pitch, and what you need to do to get your concept in front of the right people.

Q: I want an agent to pitch for me. Why do I need to buy this course?
A: Unless you have a successful track record of selling shows, you won’t get an agent. You need the information in our TV Pitch School to guide you through the development and pitch process. Once you are offered a contract, then you can land an agent. That’s how it worked for us. Plus, even when you have an agent, you still have to pitch your own projects.

Q: I don’t have time to listen to all these CDs and complete the worksheets.
A: If you’re truly serious about pitching your TV show to top network execs, then you can’t afford NOT to complete this course. Listen to the CDs on the way to work or transfer them to your iPod, take walks, and build your leg and pitch muscles at the same time.

Q: Are there samples of pitch materials in your courses?
A: Yes. We’ve included a number of sample one-sheets and production treatments/bibles. Use them for inspiration and guidance. They are highly proprietary items that can’t be found anywhere else. These samples cost tens of thousands of dollars to produce and this is the only place you can get these types of samples.
