About Your Host

Kegan Schell started his career at Atlas Entertainment, working on the DC Films under producers Chuck and Rebecca Roven (WONDER WOMAN, SUICIDE SQUAD, AMERICAN HUSTLE). After taking a break to produce a stop motion animated pilot, he then took a job at Echo Lake Entertainment in the literary department working with two managers and their writers and directors. Kegan worked his way up to coordinator with a few clients of his own while still providing support for one of the partners on the lit side, and in 2019 was promoted to full Literary Manager.

Echo Lake's client credits include THE HANDMAID'S TALE, TITAN'S BLOODLINE, THE POST, AMERICAN GODS, THE OA, CSI: MIAMI, TEEN WOLF, HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, LAW & ORDER, THE BLACK LIST, AMERICAN DAD, ONE DAY AT A TIME, WORKAHOLICS, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, REVENGE, SMASH, ROYAL PAINS, and more!

Roadmap Writers is always looking for ways to get our writers in front of super high profile executives to receive the best feedback possible on their projects.

We created Virtual Meet Ups to allow a small group of 6 writers to pitch in a roundtable setting, ask questions and build a relationship with vetted executives.

Each writer starts with a 5-minute pitch and then it'll open up to a Q&A with the participating executive so you can ask any questions you have on pitching techniques, how to best position a script in the marketplace and the industry overall!

Cancellation Policy: You may cancel for a full refund up to 72 hours prior to the start of the session. Cancellations requested after this period will be ineligible for refunds.
