Now that you have interest from a production company to move forward on the project you just pitched them, before a single network meeting can be set, a shopping agreement must first be negotiated and signed between the parties. During Shop Talk, a panel discussion with agents, lawyers, and producers at this year’s Realscreen Summit will walk you through the major deal points of the shopping agreement. How long will the shopping period last? How much compensation can you expect to receive? What is a reasonable credit to ask for even though you have never produced a show before? What will your back end participation look like? This panel will give you a clear understanding of what to ask for, and how not to over-play your hand!
