Greenlit: How to Develop Your TV Ideas From Concept to Pitch reveals how to get an idea for a documentary or non-fiction/reality television series such as Touching the Void, The Apprentice or Supernanny from concept to commission and explains why having a great idea is not enough. Candid interviews with fifty top industry insiders - including international producers and buyers - reveal how globally successful shows were originally conceived and pitched; their war stories are in turns cautionary, entertaining and inspiring. Each chapter is stuffed with case studies, practical tips, resource lists, sample proposals and exercises designed to boost your skills and help you develop your own commission-winning ideas. Read it straight through for a master class in development and commissioning, or dip in to specific chapters when you need a refresher. Read this book to ensure your documentary or TV proposal is the one in one hundred that gets noticed.
