From what I’ve come to understand, literary agents typically do not sell to Hollywood, they sell to publishers. So the only way to get television or movie rights optioned or sold is to partner with a TV/film agent, or list your works in a huge online database. Large literary agencies have film departments whose full-time job is creating and maintaining relationships with Hollywood agencies, and trying to get film agents interested in their authors’ books. But most writers aren’t represented by these larger agencies.
It seemed apparent to me that authors, along with their literary agents, must have a proactive person on-board to get their written stories in front of the appropriate people in Hollywood.
With my background and vast connections in Hollywood, it was natural for me to help get Author’s works in front of appropriate broadcasters, OTT studios as well as top producers, directors and actors.
