Script Pipeline Hires Creative Executive, Expands Industry Network
In an effort to continue enhancing our writer-to-industry facilitation process, Script Pipeline brought on a Creative Executive, Jeffrey McCrann, this past November.
The new CE has been working closely with Senior Executive and Director of Development Matt Joseph Misetich to expand the Script Pipeline industry network of producers, agents, managers, and other top-tier companies seeking properties for film and television. In-house writer development as well as individual assistance for recent Script Pipeline competition winners and finalists will also be placed as a greater priority in 2017 and beyond.
“We’re in a position now to become the foremost writer discovery platform in the world,” Matt said. “We’ve already taken huge strides in connecting our recent Script Pipeline and Book Pipeline contest finalists with the right outlets. Getting projects produced has always been our number one goal, and given Jeff’s background and level of experience, we’ve never been more confident in our ability to find the best up-and-coming writers and secure a home for their material.”
Jeff started his career at Lionsgate Entertainment before moving on to FEARnet Television, where he managed Development and Acquisitions for the genre network. Most recently, Jeff worked in acquisitions for Participant Media's Pivot network before joining the team at Script Pipeline.
"Having been in TV and film for years, I’m both overwhelmed and thrilled by the quality of work coming through Script Pipeline," Jeff said. "I’m looking forward to playing a key role in industry outreach and getting these scripts into the hands of executives looking for emerging talent."
The 2017 seasons for Screenwriting and TV Writing are open for entries. Submit by March 1st.
