TV Production Companies ft. Logan Kriete (Producer & Development Executive) (PT74)

Alex and Nick invite Logan Kriete, producer and development executive at Escape Artists (and formerly from Superb Entertainment/Baer Bones), to discuss how TV production companies work and find their projects.

What are overall deals or “PODs” and why are they important? How is material turned into a TV show? What makes a script stand out for an executive? How does the development and notes process work? How do production companies sell shows to studios and networks? How does the evolving TV format impact projects? Why does persistence matter in the TV industry?

The Paper Team does the POD challenge…
