Something that allows the development exec the opportunity to really digest it, and share with their colleagues and boss. A skeleton key that will open the door of acceptance. And that tangible thing is your pitch bible. (Also called a pitch document or pitch deck) Some common questions I’ve heard are: What should I put in my pitch document? How long should it be? Where can I get a shirt like that? The simple answer is: Everything that makes your show stand out. Some people spend tons of money printing full-color, glossy, poster board presentations, and others just have a one-sheet with art on the back. I’ve seen both approaches work. The truth is, there is no hard and fast rule to what your pitch document consists of. It needs to be long enough to do its job. But not too big! That is, to entice the team of execs that your show idea is worth developing after you’ve left the building. It needs to not only represent your idea and characters, but also convey your skills, passion, and personality. After your pitch, your pitch document will be tossed on the corner of a desk, on a stack of other pitches, right next to a quirky desk toy. It might not get touched again for that day, or week. When it’s re-read, it needs to zap the exec’s memory, reminding her of how excellent you and your show idea are. “Oh yeah,” she’ll think to herself, “This was that hilarious pitch with those breakdancing hats! I’m going to share it with the boss. Right after this kale smoothie.” That document needs to sing! It’s got to be impressive. Why? Because the amount of time the boss looks at your pitch bible will be exactly 1/5th of the time the first exec spent looking at it.
