The takeaway here is to perfect your vision of the show, being mindful that many of these initial choices will change. Writing for television is highly collaborative. Avoid lots of tedious plot details, but do let them know where the series goes after the pilot. Let potential buyers know your intention for your series in the pitch so they have a framework for the story you’re trying to tell. On-demand viewership has generated a high appetite for serialized stories for maximum audience engagement and emotional investment in the characters. The producers to target are ones with Production Overall Deals at studios and networks, and it might be a good idea to suss out a producer who had a hit series recently, but doesn’t have any shows on the air currently; these producers are always aggressively looking for The Next Big Thing and might be more open to hearing pitches and reading spec pilots.
