Presented by: Roadmap Writers
Pitching your TV show is an integral part of getting your show developed. Join us for this workshop, in which Roadmap Writers will discuss the do's and don'ts of pitching TV. Creators will have an opportunity to ask RoadMap questions and actually pitch live during the workshop to apply what they have learned!
Lead by: Jorge Gonzalez & Briana Hansen
Briana Hansen is an actress, comedian, writer, and all-around goofball who performs stand up, sketch, and improv whenever she's not hiding behind her computer screen typing away at a screenplay, sketch, series, or whatever else might tickle her typing fancy. Originally born and raised in the Midwest, she now proudly calls Los Angeles her home. She's performed and trained at The Second City, iO, The Groundlings, UCB, The Annoyance, and The Pack theaters. She's traveled the country touring with her solo show, Femoir, and continues to travel performing sketch and stand up wherever will have her. She wrote, produced, and starred in an original series, The Other Client List, which was featured on HelloGiggles. She's also authored three books and produces and performs in two a monthly sketch shows at The Pack Theater with "Book Report" and her sketch team Very Famous. She continues to constantly write and produce short films, sketches, and pilots that are screened at various comedy festivals in LA and across the country. Her short film "DIY Daisy" garnered critical comedy acclaim at major fests and was picked up by Swedish TV, so she's a big deal in Sweden, y'all. She also freelance writes for various online publications. She's a fan of dogs, the ocean, traveling, sunscreen, yoga, and loving things that make her sound like a total LA stereotype.
