Hollywood Gets Reel With New Way to Pitch a TV Show or Movie Idea
We just signed a deal last week and now our TV show idea is moving on to development…
With digital Hollywood’s insatiable appetite for fresh ideas for new movies and TV shows, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood studios, networks, and new media outlets forged a pipeline to tap new creatives. Thanks to today’s technology, new filmmakers, screenwriters and anyone with an idea for a television show or Movie can share their pitch with Hollywood Studio and Network Executives.
TV/Film Industry vets Erik Adams and Scott Manville partnered to deliver the newly launched industry marketplace iPITCH.TV – https://ipitch.tv. It’s the Film and Television Industry’s newest marketplace for direct connection of Creators and Buyers of original screenplays, video pitch reels and all types of ideas for Film, TV & Web/Digital Media. Delivering a next generation platform for creators of both video produced and written pitches, the site was founded on the core belief that if a highly original TV or Movie pitch can meet the eyes of the right entertainment industry professional, there is no “gatekeeper” or “closed door” that can prevent that screenplay or pitch from meeting its destiny as a produced film, television show or streaming media program.
The reception from Producers and TV/Film executives has already given it legs. Todd Stevens Productions & Madrik Multimedia optioned a Game Show idea pitched by creator Gary White of Lebanon, Kentucky. Gary said in a recent interview, “We just signed an agreement last week and now our TV show idea is moving on to development with the hope of selling the idea to a distribution outlet”. Canadian Prodco Buck Productions who Produce for Discovery, SyFy, Reelz Channel, AOL and several other major cable networks, optioned two TV show ideas that were pitched by Creators in iPitch.tv’s marketplace. And reality TV production company 2C Media offered another creator a “1st look” producing deal. Other production companies and studios at iPitch.tv include: Discovery Studios, Authentic Entertainment, New Line Cinema, Warner Bothers, Echo Lake Entertainment, Relativity Television, Leftfield Entertainment, Gurney Productions, Brian Graden Media, and Tom Forman Productions to name a few.
The new marketplace also delivers insider knowledge on pitching ideas via iPitch.tv’s “Insiders Get Reel” interview series. Recently featured are published conversations with Academy Award nominated producer, Doug Mankoff of Echo Lake Entertainment, and Oscar winning studio head turned legendary producer, Mike Medavoy of Phoenix Pictures. Mankoff said in his recent interview at iPitch.tv: “Right now there’s a lot of money in the marketplace and that money is looking for good stories, good directors and good actors…We’re looking for something that’s fresh and different…something that covers new ground. We’re looking for something that is going to be told in a way that allows us to connect with characters and identify with their journey.”
iPITCH.TV co-founder, Erik Adams concluded, “In our evolving media landscape, industry executives need efficient methods to source new TV shows, movie ideas, and stories that resonate. In parallel, new creatives now have a platform that gives their ideas direct exposure, be it a reality TV show idea, screenplay, movie idea, or digital web series. iPitch can help connect these rich story sources with the decision makers who develop film, new media, and TV today.” Co-founder, Scott Manville added, “Educating and facilitating the connection of screenwriters, filmmakers, and creators from any corner of the country with a service like iPitch.tv gives them the opportunity for success that their pitches deserve. And that’s equally beneficial for the industry.”
iPitch.tv welcomes new pitches for consideration by its industry executive members in all genres of television, film, and digital media.
