From Pitch to Punchline

Date: Friday, June 8th

Pitching a TV show can be an intimidating process, but these creators have the added level of having to sell “funny.” What do the does and don’ts of a comedy pitch? What’s the balance between humor and story? And what happens with the network/studio doesn’t “get the joke”? These creators rehash their process for creating the perfect pitch, what happened in the room, and how their series evolved into what we see on our screens today.

Panelist: Joel Church-Cooper (Brockmire), Kate Lambert (Teachers), Jeff Astrof (Trial & Error)
