Selling Your TV Show without Representation
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Getting representation to sell your TV show can be a frustrating experience especially when you are told that you need an agent to sell a show, and you can’t get an agent if you haven’t sold a show. So which comes first the chicken or the egg? Dr. Donna knows firsthand that it has nothing to do with either the chicken, or the egg. It has to do with your mind set, your talent, and your relationships.
The TV series, "Necessary Roughness", was based on the life of Dr. Donna Dannenfelser when she served as the mental health clinician to the New York Jets. When USA Network picked up her show they told her, "If your writers can get on the page what you just told us we will have an award winning show." Donna pitched her show without an agent or a manager and without a pilot script, just an idea along with her life story. It was her belief that her show was worthy; her mind set that it only takes one yes; and her persistence, that allowed her to sell a TV series without representation.
This webinar is presented to you by Dr. Donna Dannenfelser, psychotherapist, producer, writer and script consultant. Many in the industry told her it would never happen. She said… “Watch me.” This webinar will get you into the mindset of Dr. Donna and show you where your mindset needs to be to manifest your own TV series.
