Production Title: “Montrose” – TV SHOW (Public access)
Production Type: Television Series
Production Format: HD
Production Location: Houston
Production Schedule: TBD
Synopsis: This serial drama (cross between Melrose Place & Shameless) will be produced and aired via Houston Media Source on local public access during its initial run. My goal is to monetize the project as a TV Show so we can shoot a full season. However, contingency plans are in place should that goal not be realized. Each episode (3) is written for a 30 minute TV timeslot (around 20-22 pages).
REHEARSAL IS A MUST. Being “off-book” for rehearsal is also required. If you live out of town, we can rehearse 1on1 via Skype/facetime. If you feel that these requirements are unreasonable, then I politely ask that you forgo your submission.
Please email your headshot, resume, reel (optional) and/or questions to email@example.com. Thank you and I appreciate your time!
