What’s Your Pitch?

Date: Saturday 6/6
Time: 2:30 PM
Venue: SFA Ballroom

Ever wonder how your favorite series was pitched in the room? How’d they get a studio/network on board with the show that eventually made it to your small screen? Do you think it morphed along the way into something else or did they always know?

Hear directly from showrunners/creators how they pitched their original series ideas, plus executives that have heard some of the most iconic pitches, then judge for yourself if that is in fact what made it to your small screen. Then they’ll discuss the factors that affected the original pitch, the pilot, and the ultimate series; and why certain changes may have been made to get their story onto your TV.

Panelists: Michael Jacobs, Dan Harmon, Kathleen McCaffrey, Mark Johnson

Moderator: Debra Birnbaum
