Joey is interested in reading bold + exciting fresh voices. Any genre is fine, as long as it has a different lens into the story. As the connector between writers and execs for Roadmap, Joey is always vetting writers/scripts that can stand apart from other submissions. This also includes stories set in different parts of the world.
When submitting your script for this, please also send your bio and other loglines (with tonal comps and formats) so Joey can review your portfolio and marketing strategy.
If after the session, Joey and the writer feel the script is ready to market, Joey will discuss the companies he can reach out to on the writer's behalf. During the writers strike, he will only be reaching out to reps. If the script needs more work, the writer and Joey will raincheck marketing until the script is ready for market.
Joey started in the industry at Bold Films (DRIVE, NIGHTCRAWLER, WHIPLASH) and has read for Hugh Jackman's company, George Clooney's company, and Night and Day Pictures, to name a few. Experiencing how hard it was for writers to receive real tangible advice on how to break into the industry, Joey and Dorian created Roadmap Writers over 6 years ago. At Roadmap, Joey focuses on connecting vetted writers with execs in the industry. He has helped hundreds of writers connect to their representation, get staffed and get produced. He also mentors for Cinestory and The Writers Lab. When he's not helping writers, he spends his time rescuing animals in need.
Through Joey's outreach, writers have signed to CAA, APA, Verve, Circle of Confusion, 42, Anonymous Content, Affirmative Entertainment, Range Media partners, Bellevue Productions, Buchwald Agency, Meridian Artists, Rosa Entertainment, RAIN, Lit Entertainment Group, Luber Roklin, Echo Lake, Navigation Media Group, Industry Entertainment, Schemers Entertainment, AAO Entertainment, Kaplan Perrone, Grandview, Housefire Management, Allied Management Group, Artists First, 3 Arts, Story Driven, Ensemble Entertainment, Citizen Skull, Heroes and Villains, Sugar23, First Story Entertainment, Mosaic, Chatrone, Metamorphic Management, Gramercy Park Entertainment, The Cartel, Avalon, Art/Work, Untitled Entertainment, Gotham Group, Schulman Management, Kersey Management, Good Fear, Agile Entertainment, The Gersh Agency, A3, Content House, Kaplan Stahler, Wonder Street, Framework Entertainment, HG5 Entertainment, Zero Gravity, 831 Entertainment, REJ Entertainment, Paradigm, Epicenter, Fourth Wall, Make Good Content and more.

These signed writers have gone on to sell and set up projects with Warner Bros., Netflix, Amazon, MGM, Lionsgate, Starz, Hulu, Bigscope Films, Nicely Entertainment, Stampede Ventures, among others. They have also staffed on GREASE: RISE OF THE PINK LADIES, WE WERE LIARS, LAW & ORDER, COBRA KAI, NIGHT COURT, BRIDGERTON, THE FLASH, CHICAGO PD, FUBAR, THE FIRST LADY, THE GOOD DOCTOR, THE RESIDENT, REACHER, SUBJECT TO CHANGE, MAYANS MC and POKER FACE.

Cancellation Policy: You may cancel your registration for a refund or Roadmap gift card if you have not yet submitted your material for review. However, once your material has been received by Roadmap, your registration cannot be canceled. Having revised material or a desire to retroactively apply a discount or gift card code are not grounds for cancellation, refunds, or gift card credit. Once your material has been submitted, the only acceptable grounds for cancellation and a refund or gift card credit is an unforeseen, ongoing emergency on the part of either the writer or the exec resulting in more than 6 weeks without any scheduling update from the exec via direct contact or Roadmap, or a sudden change in the exec's ongoing availability. In the instance of an irreconcilable scheduling issue, the writer may still receive a written feedback report from the exec. In this case, the writer is not entitled to a refund or gift card credit as the exec has read the submitted material and provided written feedback in lieu of the in-person consultation meeting.
