Pitch Tips

Character is King, for sure. Always make sure your structure is clear and concise: focus on character and emotion first, and save all the little details and a five-season-plan for later.

About Your Host

Max Cunningham has been working at Berlanti Productions for almost two years, where he currently assists prolific writer-producer-director Greg Berlanti, whose television credits include THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA, YOU, RIVERDALE, THE FLASH, ARROW, and SUPERGIRL, along with the feature film LOVE SIMON. Prior to that, he started at the company as an intern and was later hired as the assistant to their head of television development, Ryan Lindenberg. There, he spent time learning the ins and outs of how a television series actually moves from an early-stage pitch to a finished pilot in broadcast and streaming -- all while keeping Ryan's schedule and day-to-day life organized and efficient. He was later promoted to Greg's desk, where he manages his increasingly insane schedule while learning more and more about the larger creative process. Max graduated with honors from the University of Arizona, with a degree in English Literature and a minor in Film & Television.
