So I have an agent now! The first thing my agent did was send me a bunch of pilots that had been picked up. He told me to read them and we’d strategize which shows to send me out for.
There are a lot of pilots. I had 35 broadcast comedy scripts, to be exact. I started by reviewing the pilot grid, which is this this huge spreadsheet of information that includes the pilot title, genre, network, network exec, studio, production company, writers, and logline.
I read the scripts depending on which ones had the most interesting loglines, and which ones thought I might be a good fit for. My sample is a single camera network family sitcom, so I started with ones that had a similar tone. My agent gave me his thoughts as well on which pilots I should read.
I updated my agent as I read them, and told him which ones were my favorites, which ones I liked, and which ones I wasn’t really connecting with.
My agent sent my pilot out to people. A couple people read it and liked it, and wanted to meet me. Exciting!
