Lately I’ve been getting a lot of emails, replies and direct messages from folks wanting to pitch me their TV show/web-series/blog/book/podcast/acting reel and even the occasional movie script.  Sorry, but, notwithstanding my job title, I’m not looking for unsolicited internet submitted ideas nor is it the way I find new clients. The recent volume of unsolicited material kept growing so I had to recently post this on Facebook, but it very much applies to all my social media outlets:

Hi New Facebook Friend! Please note that I don’t take pitches via FB or other social networks. I hope you understand that it’s nothing personal nor is it reflective of your ideas – just that I don’t have the bandwidth to read/view/listen/assess/respond to all the material that gets sent my way. Thanks for understanding.

The traditional way one gets an agent is by having someone that the agent knows and trusts submit material or a name for the agent’s consideration. Often, other colleagues at the agency are consulted before the agent decides to represent someone. That’s how it works.
