Built for Success:
Developing and Producing Non-Fiction
Programming in Today’s Environment
Sunday, September 15th, 2013
Veteran executives, producers and consultants Peter Hamilton and Ed Hersh lead an intensive half-day workshop dedicated to helping producers understand the chaotic and rapidly-changing nonfiction and factual marketplace. Learn how to develop effective strategies for getting projects greenlit.
Discussion subjects will include:
A tour of the network landscape: which networks commission documentaries, specials and series, including reality series.
Series vs. one-offs: what you need to know.
Why some producers seem to get “all” the greenlights, and others don’t.
The network commissioning process: What you need to know before you pitch, when you’re in the room, and what happens afterwards.
Five things that MUST be in your pitch to have it considered.
Key deal terms for work-for-hire commissions, co-productions and acquisitions.
Do emerging producers need an agent? Or is it better to partner with an established producer? And what's the deal for 'marrying up?'
