Formats Interested In
Particularly Interested In

I'm particularly interested in pilots that are socially relevant and drama bending pieces that could be on premium television. The next version of I MAY DESTROY YOU, preferably female driven.

As far as what I’d like to see more of- I’m also looking for slightly more light hearted fare (does not have to be a comedy) and some strong points-of-views in both 1/2 hr and 1 hr format.
