What do you look for in the writers you choose to represent? What should they look for when trying to choose an agent? I look for writers who have a unique voice and story. Most times, the best writers have gone through unique experiences that allow them to write in a vivid, interesting way. I also look for diversity because by finding and representing diverse voices, all of entertainment can become more diversified.  When choosing representation, writers should look for people who are willing to give them their full attention and honest feedback. People should not sign with an agent or manager because they are well known or have other clients they admire.
What type of material are you looking for? I am looking for grounded stories that depict something we’ve never seen before. I love when characters feel familiar, like you know them, but bring you into this whole other world you’ve never explored.
Are you looking for interns? Our company hires summer interns and pays them an hourly wage.  They do script coverage, shadow assistants and work on various projects throughout their time here.
Is there any advice you would like to offer the writers who are pitching you? Enthusiasm is very important, as is conciseness in your pitch to keep people engaged. For new writers, keep writing, keep writing and don’t stop writing. Have many different kinds of stories and scripts so you are ready in the room where you may be asked on the spot.
