[Marketing Series] How to Land Your First Staffing Gig

Celena Cipriaso
Staff Writer @ CBS (CLARICE)
Wednesday 5/12 @ 4:00pm - 5:30pm PT

Pilot season is nearly over, which means it's time for shows to start staffing their rooms. For TV writers, this is one of the busiest times of year: sending out samples, taking meetings, and then taking more meetings. But for those of us wading into our first staffing season (or wanting to get as much information as possible before we're ready to wade in) how to actually get staffed on a show seems pretty nebulous. 

What are the actionable steps you can take right now to prepare for staffing season? And how should you navigate your meetings and put your best foot forward with every showrunner you chat with? 

With all this and more, Roadmap welcomes alumna Celena Cipriaso! 


This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • What is staffing season?
  • Samples and portfolios
  • How to take meetings
  • Live Q&A!
