Shift Your POV and Mega-Improve Your Pitches
TV has changed pretty drastically in the last 20 years. If you listen to Joke’s advice from episode 1 of this podcast Make Reality TV Shows & Documentary Series with Joke & Biagio, you know your big homework when starting out is to watch TV.
Yet so many, many, many aspiring producers continue to pitch us shows that wouldn’t be on TV today (something we hit hard in our ultimate guide to pitching reality TV.)
One of the main culprits of this phenomenon is people pitching shows from the wrong POV — and it’s one of the top reasons we instantly discard pitches as not worth considering.
However, this will never happen to you — whether you’re pitching to us or any other reality TV production company in Hollywood.
Here’s what we cover today:
- “Looking At” versus “Living With”
- Hosts versus Characters
- Shifting your POV to create pitches that get noticed
- Understanding how unscripted television works today
- What extreme basket weaving has to do with any of this!
Hit the giant PLAY button above to learn how to shift your POV when creating and pitching shows, and massively improve your chances for success.
