Advice from a show runner

Chris Lloyd (Modern Family): Write from the heart. You can always make a real story funny; you can’t always make a funny story real.

How do movie stars live on location? In style

I remember hearing about Will Smith’s 2 story high RV, but I didn’t believe it. Well, it’s true.

I just found a video that shows off the incredible trailers and RVs for Will Smith, Robert Deniro, Stallone and more.

See how the other half lives….and then sell your show and live just like this!

What Networks Want

When talking to Brad Abramson, VP of VH1 Productions and Progamming, he said they were looking for celeb reality shows, they do really well with their audience.  They look for shows that have originality, that are wildly different, interacting characters and their main audience is fun sassy strong women.  One of the most important things in pitching your show is you must be able to pitch more than what happens in show 1. he wants to know what happens in shows 2 thru 8.
