Ideation and Pitching for TV and Film with Jordan Reddout ’10
This is an interactive workshop where students will learn about the creation and sale of ideas for television and film. We will discuss strategies for "blue sky" ideation and learn how to create successful pitches for those ideas. Reddout is a TV writer from Winter Haven, Florida, who has written for Will & Grace, Grownish, Dollface, The Muppets and Mixedish with her writing partner, Gus Hickey '11. She is currently adapting the movie Clueless into a new TV show for Peacock. While at Harvard, she was a Music and Social Anthropology concentrator and a proud resident of Quincy House. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Thomas Wilhoit '13, their baby and dog (no class years listed).
