ATG LATEST NEWS:    

FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLETT! Pilot Season start late January and will be moving like lightening.
WHAT IS A PILOT? The Pilot itself is a stand-alone episode of a series that is used to sell the series and will usually run as the first episode of the series, if picked up.
HOW ARE PILOTS CAST? Most pilots have about 6 weeks to cast anywhere from 5-25 roles each. However, because producers want to sell their idea, they usually jam pack that pilot with well known actors. Lists are made up of first choice actors – the A-List – then second choice – the B list- (hence the term A-List, B-List etc.) Later casting will pull from agent submissions.
HOW ARE THINGS CHANGING? Now that Amazon and Netflix are in the game, the landscape is more and more crowded. This year’s trends will include a lot of pilots based on webseries or even podcasts.
