Pitch-a-thon! Roadshow

Independent content creators will have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive live pitch session with top television, new media and digital execs in hopes of moving their projects - and careers - forward.

Why Oklahoma?

Located just south of the geographic center of the United States, Oklahoma is equidistant from Los Angeles and New York City. Across its 77 counties, you’ll have access to 12 distinct eco-regions where you can experience everything from trademark Great Plains and sweeping prairies to the unexpected lush forest, expansive plateaus and sand dunes.

How It Works:

Writers submit to participate in this unique opportunity and 4-5 writers are selected to pitch their new series ideas to a panel of industry experts, curated by SeriesFest. Once selected to pitch, writers receive coaching from Working Artist Group to refine their pitch as well as a SeriesFest alumni mentor for one-on-one feedback before the event. All writers will get to watch the pitches and feedback live, providing an exciting educational opportunity for everyone.
