Pitching to Networks, with Abbey MacDonald
3pm-4:30pm, ImprovBoston (Classroom 1)
You've got a killer show idea and you're dying to pitch it to networks, but how do you go about that? Development Executive Abbey MacDonald can answer that question and produced numerous comedy specials and worked alongside projects for Comedy Central, Hulu, Netflix and Amazon. She has also set up projects with NBC, UCP, and Showtime. In this talk Abbey will walk through common pitching related questions such as; How do I get a meeting? What happens there? What does the network need to hear from me? How should I follow up? She has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share and you won't want to miss out on it!
Abbey MacDonald is the Head of Digital Acquisitions at LAFF, a 24 hour comedy broadcast network that launched earlier this month. Abbey began her comedy career in LA in 2008 producing the massively popular stand up at Candor Comedy Specials. She then spent five years managing talent at New Wave Entertainment, where she produced numerous comedy specials and worked alongside projects for Comedy Central, VH1, MTV, Hulu, Netflix and Amazon. She has also set up projects with NBC, UCP, and Showtime. This is her first year attending WICF and she's excited to see the wealth of talent the festival has to offer.
