Netflix Pitch

  •  

    You will choose one of the summer reading books you read over the summer and write a “pitch” to Netflix explaining why/how they should turn your book into the next big TV series or movie.

    Required elements to complete individually over the summer

    • Write a brief summary/overview of your book, so that the Netflix producers will get a general sense of what it is about.
    • Then, explain whether the show should be a TV series or a movie and why. Don’t forget to include what genre the show/movie would fall under on Netflix.
    • Next, decide what/who the target audience for this show or movie would be (who would ideally watch/enjoy it) and why.
    • Consider what element(s) of the book the producers should keep the same and which they can remove or change in their adaptation of the book into film.
    • Choose three characters from your book and cast them with real life actors. Explain your casting recommendations to the producers and why you think these actors/actresses would help bring the characters to life on the screen.
