Pitch Tips

I love character above all else. And I like a good journey. If plot heavy, give me a world that I couldn't fathom.

About Your Host

Samantha Flinn grew up in the Midwest and was raised by her grandparents so she was watching Doris Day & Rock Hudson romcoms and Bette Davis early on. When she got to see my mom, it was a crash course in John Hughes (she was named after Samantha Baker) and that was pretty much it for her - she was hooked on exploring the world through another person's lens.

During graduate school (MFA Film & TV Producing), Samantha was exploring multiple fields in entertainment during her internships at The Weinstein Co, New Line Cinema, Offspring, and DeLine Pictures and it was clear she loved the artist and needed to be an agent. She has worked at HBO, CAA, UTA, and is now at Paradigm as a Junior Agent/Coordinator. Prior to Paradigm, Samantha did 18 months with British agency ARG and put Richard E. Grant in AMC's DISPATCHES FROM ELSEWHERE, newcomer Emilia Jones in Carlton Cuse's new Netflix series LOCKE & KEY and Sian Heder's forthcoming CODA, Daniel Radcliffe in BEEF (to shoot next year), and Toby Jones in Kelly Reichardt's FIRST COW.
