As a longtime television producer, I can not tell you how many times people approach me, whether in meetings or at dinner parties, and tell me that they have the best idea for a television show and then ask me how they can sell it. The truth is, selling a television series can be an extremely difficult and expensive task. Research shows that for every fifty shows that are pitched, maybe one will get approved. Maybe. The process is time-consuming and frustrating as the needs of individual networks change on a daily basis. That being said, I am hoping to shed some light on the process and provide a few tips and tricks to give you the best advantage.
