[Perspective Series] The Exec Writer Relationship

Dan Seco
Manager @ Schemers Entertainment

When it comes to the exec writer relationship, there's a lot of confusion out there and the potential for signals to get really mixed. If an exec asks to read your script, does that mean they want to make it/sign you? What does hip-pocketing mean? And even if you signed a contract of some kind, what is the etiquette for carrying on an official working relationship? 

To answer all this and more, Roadmap is thrilled to have Dan Seco join us for this webinar. 


This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • Relationships with reps vs. producers 
  • Getting on and staying on an exec's radar 
  • Maintaining the relationships you have 
  • Live Q&A
