Half hour comedies. Ideally female driven, but that's not a rule. Hour long comedy-drama pilots or rom-coms are intriguing as well! I'm interested in stories that are joyful, or make me think outside of the box. Stories that keep me on the edge of my seat. I'm less concerned about specific genre and format, and more reading stories that can make a difference, or make me laugh, or feature a strong female protagonist.
Horror, or super heady world building stories. I like sci-fi if it's less about the specific science and more about the mystery or characters. For me, character based stories trump plot driven pilots. In that vein, not that interested in procedurals or soap operas.
