It can take hundreds to thousands of hours of meetings and pitches for a script to gain traction in the TV market. This list is not exhaustive and none of these individuals have made any commitment, implied or otherwise, to take action on this script. What they have done … is simply state that they like the script and will move it to the next person in their organization. Humility is key and merely providing a RECOMMEND stamp on a script is a huge accomplishment. We are very appreciative for their vote of confidence.
We would also like to send out a big THANK YOU for the team at STAGE 32, who made it possible to meet these industry professionals.
"The conversation with Will was magical and all over the place (in a good way)," said JD Wallace. Will is the Vice President of Production for IAN BRYCE PRODUCTIONS. If this production company doesn't ring a bell, well, have you heard of TRANSFORMERS, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, ALMOST FAMOUS and Michael Bay's SIX UNDERGROUND? Will gave the script a rating of: RECOMMEND -- and he is going to ask his boss, IAN BRYCE to read it. We are absolutely ecstatic about Will's belief in the script and concept.
"I cannot say what a fun and exhilarating conversation I had with Robbie," said JD Wallace. Robbie Combs is the Feature and TV Development Executive at CAPTIVATE ENTERTAINMENT. If you have heard of the movie JASON BOURNE and TV Series on USA Network, TREADSTONE, then you have heard of Captivate. Robbie gave the script a rating of: RECOMMEND -- and he is asking his boss, BEN SMITH to read it. We are humbled by the masters of spies shows being interested in our little spy show.

If you have heard of ViacomCBS, then having the opportunity to spend some time with Janean Jefferies, Development Executive, is a person we highly recommend talking to.
