‘The Making of a Dream’ Episode 16: Pitch an Exec Over and Over

Why in the hell did I pitch the same exec over and over? 

In 1999, I optioned the rights to an unreleased comic book called Dream Factory and have been on a quest ever since to get it produced as a movie or TV series. In this blog, I share with you the history, the near hits and the actual production notes as I finally move into production. #Thisismydream.

Fonda Snyder is a good friend and a super nice person and executive to deal with. So why would I subject her to a pitch of the same show over and over? Two reasons. One, the concept and the pitch changed. It got better.

Two…Whoa. You should watch the video to get the rest of the info. It’s a good story. Fonda won’t mind.
