This Virtual Meet Up is SOLD OUT but you can still submit a written pitch for Tyler's review!
Materials Due: Sunday 9/16 @ 9:00am PT
This session is great for writers with TV projects of all genres!
Roadmap Writers is always looking for ways to get our writers in front of super high profile executives to receive the best feedback possible on their projects.
We created Virtual Meet Ups to allow a small group of 6 writers to pitch in a roundtable setting, ask questions and build a relationship with vetted executives.
Each writer starts with a 5-minute pitch and then it'll open up to a Q&A with the participating executive so you can ask any questions you have on pitching techniques, how to best position a script in the marketplace and the industry overall!
This Virtual Meet Up is with Tyler Knell (Manager of Development, Circle of Confusion Television Studios)!
Success Story: Circle of Confusion has signed 2 of our writers!
Tyler Knell is the Manager of Development at Circle of Confusion Television Studios, a joint venture between Circle of Confusion and ITV Studios American, founded in 2017 with a focus on genre and science fiction-skewing cable and streaming programming. Prior to this, Tyler was the Cable Development Coordinator at CBS Television Studios where he worked on such shows as POWER (Starz), INCORPORATED (Syfy), and INSATIABLE (Netflix).
Born and raised in San Diego, CA with an appreciation for theatre and film, he followed that passion to pursue a film production degree at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, where, among other accomplishments, he received a Coca-Cola Refreshing Filmmaker Grant and produced numerous films that played in festivals worldwide.
Upon graduation, Tyler became a TV literary agent trainee at Paradigm Talent Agency before later transitioning into a career in scripted TV development. An avid sports fan in addition to his love of TV and film, one can speculate that his championing of underdogs, up-and-comers, and talented longshots over his career in television may stem from years of rooting for his beloved San Diego Padres and Chargers.
