The way I hear it, there's a feeding frenzy of production companies stealing one another's staffs and crews as everyone tries to get rolling again...
What takes so long to make a movie or TV show once the book is optioned and sold? It seems like it takes forever once someone says there’s going to be a movie for it to finally come out?
What are some (surprising) things I’ve learned about the TV/film industry since this whole journey of selling a TV show started? Who actually makes the sale happen?
So what about my book? What about it made it sell for a TV show? What is its hook (and what’s a hook)? What is SECOND SHOT’s logline (and what’s a logline)?
What are the sorts of things in books that make for a good movie or TV show? I know this GREAT book that I think would be an amazing movie…am I actually right about that?
What’s the difference between an option and a shopping deal? How many books that get optioned actually become a movie or TV show? How much do they cost to make? And the one I always get asked…how much money do authors who sell their books for TV and film get paid, anyway?
How on earth did I sell a TV show without knowing a thing about the TV/film industry? What’s a TV bible and how did you learn what one was? What's a shopping deal?
