Peter Heller’s pitch preferences
LOOKING FOR: Writers with strong voices and something to say who understand that movies and television shows have to entertain audiences.
NOT INTERESTED IN: Anything the writer thinks is unlike anything else ever written or conventional, studio/network procedurals, dramas or action/adventure
