This hands-on workshop covers the nuts and bolts of taking a television pitch meeting. We´ll discuss all the things you need in your arsenal, including:

- An elevator pitch for yourself and your particular brand of comedy
- An elevator pitch for your project
- What a pitch packet for an original TV show should contain
- Whether or not you should write the pilot

We will also go through a mock pitch meeting and talk about how to get those meetings in the first place.

If you´ve ever wanted to pitch your own ideas for a television show, this introductory workshop will show you how it´s done.

Laura´s eclectic career includes television, news, theater, fiction, and film. On screens large and small, she has lopped people´s heads off with swords, shot, strangled, and bludgeoned them, and occasionally fed them to dinosaurs. But it´s not all blood and guts: her web series Faux Baby explores the lighter side of motherhood. And if the faux baby loses a limb here or there, well… No, actually, she has no justification for that at all.
