GOT AN IDEA…NEED AN AGENT? (Here are 50 Agents for Writers, Comics, Actors, Directors & Reality Ideas… Call.)

SELL YOUR IDEA: Movie, Sitcoms & Reality

“Yo Dov, I need an agent. Do you know one?” is probably the most common question I’m asked.

And yes, I know hundreds (below is a list of Talent Agents, Literary Agents, Music Agents, Production Agents, Packaging Agents, etc.) from just one Agency but first you need to know the true job of an agent.


Let’s get real: Agents are not here to (A) sell your script or (B) get you a job; Agents are here to (C) maximize your revenue potential after you have (A2) sold your script or you have (B2) already started a career, with name recognition, for the forthcoming year.

I hope you heard (oops “read”) that… Agents are not hear to sell ideas from non-marketable people.

Thus, you must first become marketable and then you will get an agent to maximize, now that you are marketable, your revenue potential for the forthcoming year.

To get marketable you have to either make a No-Budget, Micro-Budget or Ultra-Low-Budget Movie that gets distribution or at least get a YouTube Channel with 1-3 million views of everything you post.

Thus, “You must make the first sale or get the first above-the-line title on a film, that obtains global distribution, so now an agent can call and say “I represent the WRITER-OF, the PRODUCER-OF, the DIRECTOR-OF….” Which means you are marketable!


But if all you have is an idea (I’m sure it’s great, but who doesn’t have a great idea) then you better first write it on paper (2-3 pages, double spaced typing) with a Title Page that states in parenthesis ” ( ) ” “Treatment For Feature Film” or “Treatment For Reality Series” or “Treatment For TV Sitcom” and register it with the Writers Guild ( at a cost of $20-25 and now you have proof of what you created.

For always remember “No one owns an idea”.


REALITY CHECK: Always remember, “celebrities”, “marketable names”, “hot directors” can sell ideas… Now you… you, not being one of those three must, at a minimum, write your idea, make it tangible and obtain proof (date of registration or date of copyright) of when you created it, then attach yourself (aka: partner) to a “celebrity name”… who has a track record of delivery.

But you still are asking me for some agents…. and all you have is an idea. I’m telling you its gonna be useless. But I promised in this Posts Title to give you 50 Agents so here goes…

I’ll pick an agency, PARADIGM.

They are the smallest of the “Big 6” agencies and have offices in LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK & NASHVILLE with hundreds of agents.

I’ll give you the names of 50 agents at Paradigm. FIVE-ZERO! FIFTY!

No more excuses. Now, pick up your phone and call…but (A) are you marketable, (B) do you own something (ideas are not ownable) and (C) do you have proof of an ability to deliver.

In the interim, assuming you are A, B & C (see above) here is a list of Paradigm Agents.

Since the age of 6 when my mom passed away I’ve been through so much but God has kept me sane so my – title is WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE IS GOD AMEN!!!!

      1. Beverly says:

        Keep on pushing baby and reach for the sky as I am trying to do as well. Good luck.

  2. Rebecca says:

    The article lost all credibility when “hear” should have been spelled “here”.

  3. Hi ya’ll, I am a songwriter, with some tunes placed into film productions and TV. Now I have written a film script, MATSQUI MASSACRE with another writer in CA, and we are seeking an AGENCY for representation, and film makers to produce a feature film production from this 92 page Thriller/Slasher genre. One reason I wanted this script completed, GET MY OWN DAM MUSIC placed into it.. BUT, it is impossible to locate these Agents, because of the no UNSOLOCITED stupid thing?? Any suggestions? Pamela

    1. Slavsky says:

      Just curious all these years later, were you able to sell your script or acquire representation? or what happened that you didnt

    2. Vanessa says:

      Yes, I was wondering as well if you finally got distribution. I’m having the same problem. I have a sitcom. Even packed a bag and got a one way ticket to New York (stay in a shelter for now) to pursue my dream of getting it distributed. Signed up with a public access station but still need to find funding to get it shot properly. It’s a huge hit waiting to happen, so I’m not giving up. I’ve let random people read the scripts (actors mainly, one student director) they all love it. It’s fun, original, intelligent and relevant. Still…… any advice or leads would be greatly appreciated. My email:

  4. RobinBeth Faulkner says:

    Why aren’t there any replies to these questions?

    1. Beverly says:

      O do not understand that myself either, but keep on trying. Why not let is pitch our show, it could possibly be greater then what they have already. I’m just asking for that chance to pitch it. No one knows what it could be until they see. I just know they will love my show idea. By the way the name of my show I will reveal after contacting representation.

  16. Munir Jivanji says:

    I am from Kenya.

    Have an amazing concept for a reality TV Show that will definitely be popular all across for all demographics as the theme is very relatable.
    It touches very much in todays issue of Economic, Emotion and Social theme.
    It can also be Sold / Franchised to other countries as the theme is universal and presently not touched on directly by anything similar on TV.

  23. B J Perkins says:

    Hi agents. This is B.J. I have an idea for a great tv medical drama. I am as passionate about this subject it is near and dear to my heart.

  24. Vanessa says:

    Hello, I’m just going to give this a shot. I have a sitcom I’ve written, I dare say it’s above expectations, it’s VERY GOOD. But no doubt you’ve heard that before. I’d like to find help with funding for the pilot. No doubt if I could pitch it or have someone read one of the scripts they would see that it’s well worth the investment. I’m confident in my talent and abilities, so much so that I genuinely, packed a suitcase and a backpack, just left my life in Michigan, and flew to New York with a one way ticket and my dream. I’m staying in a homeless shelter and honestly, I don’t mind, I knew I would have to do this or sleep in the subways, I did it because I knew this is where I need to be if I’m going to get closer to getting anything done. All I really need is someone to point me in the right direction. Thanks you for any advice you can give. email

I have a great movie idea based of my life which is a true story and i call it “The girl who feel hard” the reason I call it this is because all I’ve been through in life, I’m a domestic violence surviver, I was also sexually assulted by family and a friend of my biological mother. I could go on but I fell hard because of all this and I’m just a young woman looking to persue my dream and get my story out there for other woman to know they are not alone. Please email me at

  31. Brent Harris says:

    Hi my name is Brent Harris. I’ve done construction in Oklahoma since the early 80s. My dad owned a cabinet shop and i’ve worked in several homes all over Oklahoma. I have an idea for an Oklahoma based reality TV show. The whole time I was doing residential construction, I left a very extensive trail of hidden objects, messages, and hints that lead to other homes we did. It turned the house into a giant time capsules and the stuff I left there is frozen in time. I think it would be neat to go to two of the homes and have the home owners compete to find things in their homes that were left behind when the home was under construction. They could compete for money and prizes, and what ever damage they do to their home will be fixed. Preferably with Oklahoma contractors. I hid plenty of things in these homes and most homes should lead to another home which starts the whole process over again. I think it would make for a fun and entertaining show. If you have ideas on how to make this happen please contact me at ‪405-613-5426‬.
