This review is from: Sell Your TV Show Ideas - an outsider's guide to getting inside the TV format industry (Paperback)
The author of this book, Bob Barber is incredibly helpful & knowlegeable. The book is reader friendly, and is written in a stimualating and informative way. I found reading the book to be very easy to understand, fun to read and encouraging. I don't know if I would have proceeded further into the process of developing & subsequently submitting my ideas, to production companies, if I hadn't read this valuable book. I think I might have felt overwhelmed & been a bit intimidated by the whole developing ideas for TV process.
Topics include: how to develop your ideas and very invaluabe information tellig the reader how to write his/her treatment/formats, how to choose who best to approach & pitch your ideas to once you have developed them, how to format your ideas in the most effective way, how the TV industry really works, how best to protect your ideas, and finally what to expect if you are successful, in terms of an offer and a contract. All of this information is presented clearly and concisely and with a positive 'you can do' attitude.
A really brilliant book and I would encourage anyone who is at all interested in developing a TV show format to purchase this book. Many thanks to the author.
