  • Have recently found that a logline posting on something like Screenplay Fest Philadelphia is helpful and interesting because it prompts an on-going discussion about one’s logline and so, to some extent, your screenplay.

    However, have not yet had anything in the way of contact from a production company or agent. Yet.

  • Hello

    I´m author of several works like: Reality tv game show´s.

    Account Accounting – Tv game show about mathematic
    Politic correct- TV program wich teachs and explain the several kind of political systems and charges
    Synopses and one short script for animation to chieldren and one short script for erotic film.
    There are lot of works.

    • Hi Jorge,
      Have you get any production house or an agent for your script? I am also searching for my scripts.

      Regards
      Deep

  • Thanks for the list!

    I just submitted several email queries to companies listed above and so far only two of them have been undeliverable! The list still seems to be good :-)

  • probably a silly question but running up against the brick walls and stiff arms concerning trying to acquire agent representation for my original TV series programming, multiple programs that is, I’m curious though are these listed contacts just contacts for someone that already has an agent I am finding it remarkably difficult to get an agent to pedal my wares. my apologies for the lack of punctuation, etcetera this was sent via phone voice text

  • I apparently am the only one who needs an agent to present a sport concept for an entity such as ESPN and the Red Bull projects. I have been searching all of the agencies listed and cannot locate a single agent who is willing to even look at this program. Any recommendations?

  • [...] Screenwriter Agents. Hank Marlowe. WritetoReel.com. “Screenwriter Agents, Producers, Managers:” http://writetoreel.com/unsolicited-queries-agents-producers-managers-list [...]

  • Thanks for the info it has been more than helpful, if I have any success I shall post it here.xxxxx

  • Attempts to contact American Republic, Launchpad, Lucky Crow, Merchant Ivory, and Moonstone have all failed. email bounce, etc.

    • Lewis,

      Thanks for the update. This list is a few years old now I believe.

      Hank

  • Queried Bee Holder Productions and received a request the next day for my screenplay. I’ve done some research on the company and I’m hoping they see my vision and decide to move forward.

  • thanks its helpful. I have lots of scripts to give out to producer. Thanks!?

  • I would like to know about some agency interested in representing screenplays based on Jules Verne’s books.

  • Caliber Talent’s website is now http://www.calibermedia.com/contact

    • Awesome, Erika.

      Thanks for the update.

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
