From Pitch to Current Series: How to take your project from idea to on-screen

Sarah Landy

We are happy to speak to the process of pitching & developing a concept and taking it to current series. As two creators (one producer and one artist/ animation director) and two network executives, we feel we can speak to a number of different angles and experiences as to what makes a successful pitch and what goes into the process of bringing it to series.
