We just teamed up with two more of YOU to get a show in development at a major cable network. Today, we’ll share how you can achieve that kind of success all while saving time and money. You’ll also learn what happens AFTER we say, “yes, we love your show.”
Make the Most of Your Resources and Reach Success Faster
Today you’ll meet Joey Gemelli and Natalie Terrell, two aspiring producers who are — well, no longer aspiring.
Now, they’re doing the real thing.
Just like many of you, Joey and Natalie knew about our outreach to those who want to work in unscripted programming.
Unlike most people who approach us, they pitched us a project, and did EVERYTHING right.
Making Tapes That Sell Shows
We teamed up with Joey and Natalie, further developed the show with them, and funded a pitch reel we then shot and edited together.
That show concept, working title SISTER WITCHES, is now officially in development at a major cable network, and Joey and Natalie are working hard to take their career to the next level.
This Is Your Blueprint For Success
While this duo may have a bit more experience than some of you, today you’ll learn how you can take the EXACT same steps they did to pitch us a show we were interested in, and how their attitude and work ethic made it possible to take the show from concept to development deal.
By learning from their example, you’ll skyrocket your odds of career success.
Assuming, of course, you’re willing to work as hard as Joey and Natalie were!
