You guys, it finally happened. I got an agent!
I’m repped by Kaplan Stahler! I don’t want to go into detail, but it involves a meeting at ICM last August, leaving a day job, a stock trade on Apple quarterly earnings, and a certain reader of this blog. Seriously, it’s crazy how it happened, but luckily, I was ready and had my script ready when the opportunity came, and now I have an agent!
I have to thank all my writer friends who gave me notes on my pilot, my mentor Kourtney Kang, and Karin and everyone at CAAM.
Since I got signed earlier this month, I’ve been reading a bunch of pilots, and brainstorming ideas for new pilots to write. Hopefully I’ll get meetings, go out for staffing season, and get a job writing on a show!
congrats on getting that agent man!!!
Congrats, Kiyong! I love keeping up with your journey here. You’re an inspiration!
Great news. Congrats.
Congrats and good luck!
Congrats on getting an agent!! What was the process like once you got them to read your samples? Do you meet with a team and then sign a contract? is there a background check?
Thanks! Once my agent read my pilot, he wanted to meet. For other writers I know, sometimes an agent will ask for more samples. I didn’t meet the rest of the team, but I know writers who have. There was no contract to sign. Nothing that formal.
