Everyone has an idea for a TV show, whether it’s the next big crime doc, hilarious dating show, or dramatic competition series. As an unscripted development producer at a major production company, Chelsea is the person at the other end of the inbox deciding whether or not the company is interested. Having read hundreds of pitches, she knows there’s a clear line between half-baked ideas and those exciting ideas that catch someone’s attention.


In this workshop you will learn what makes a pitch stand out and how best to pitch your idea. How much development do you need to do before pitching and what exactly do you need to send? The focus of this workshop will be unscripted content, but knowing how to package and present your ideas effectively is an indispensable skill across the entertainment industry at every level.
