[Industry Series] So You Want to Be Staffed? Understanding The TV Staffing Season

Danny Alexander (TV Agent, APA) & Charlotte Johnson (Staff Writer, NBC's PERFECT HARMONY)

It’s that time of year again: TV Staffing Season. For all TV writers, aspiring and working, Staffing Season is the time of year to really buckle down and make sure you’re sending out the best possible samples and killing it in every meeting you walk into. But for those unfamiliar with how staffing a show works, what are some dos and don’ts of the process? Who is responsible for staffing shows? And how can you make the best first impression possible? 

To answer all these questions and more, Roadmap is thrilled to have Danny Alexander and Charlotte Johnson on this special event panel! 

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • What and when is staffing season?
  • Ways writers get staffed on shows
  • Prepping samples and meeting dos and don’ts
  • Live Q&A!
