Pilot Season is here and we know folks have a lot of questions. And let’s just admit it – some of the best conversations happen while noshing at the same time. Keeping in mind those who are hungry for success, hungry for knowledge, and those who are, well, just hungry—Triple Threat has partnered with Match Burger Lobster to host an open conversation about what pilot season is and what you can do to prepare for it now or in the future. Leading the conversation will be talent manager Jodi Schoenbrun Carter and two professional actors with extensive pilot season experience. Here are just a few of the questions we will address: What are the different kinds of pilots? How do I find out what the pilots are? What is the difference between broadcast, streaming and cable? Who casts pilots? How is the audition process different? Are my chances better if I go to LA? What is testing? If I book a pilot what should I expect?
