About the Book:

Two successful movie and TV producers provide you with the tools needed to create, develop, and sell ideas to Hollywood.

You've got a great Hollywood movie that is perfect for today's hottest A-list movie stars. If only you knew how to create a great movie pitch, then you could make your Hollywood dreams a reality. In Pitching Hollywood: How to Sell Your TV Show and Movie Ideas, you'll learn the art of Hollywood pitching from the "Pitch King" himself, Bob Kosberg, and Emmy Award-winning television producer Jonathan Koch.

They are experts at pitching, Hollywood-style. You will learn:

• What makes an idea a great one.
• How to find or create a great idea.
• How to develop a "high concept" with a strong plot idea than can be easily summarized.
• What ideas should be avoided.
• What goes into a good pitch.
• How long should a pitch be.
• How to find the right people to pitch.
• What to say when you contact them.
• How to protect your idea.
• How to "package" an idea involving specific actors and actresses.
• Necessary writing treatments.
• When it is better to have a full screenplay, rather than just and idea.
• How pitching a movie differs from pitching a TV show.
