Meet the EP behind The Jinx, Capturing the Friedmans, and Catfish: The Show

Location: New York

Our 'Meet the EP' conversations help connect creators to established executive producers who can share insights on what it takes to develop, sell, and produce a television show in 2023. Understand what producers are thinking when they sit across the table from you during a pitch meeting, hear what they think about which projects the industry actually wants, and learn how they develop ideas into compelling, long-form, multi-season TV shows.
