Our resident Television expert TV Consultant Joey uses her experience working for various production companies to answer the following question:
Q: How long should I wait before following up with a producer/agent/manager after sending my brilliant query letter?
A: Two weeks. Wait two weeks, then place an amazingly nice, polite, chatty follow-up call with the assistant.
Remember, these assistants are often over-worked and under-paid. Thus, the “amazingly nice,” tone.
If he/she tells you they haven’t had a chance to review it. Wait another two weeks and try again. (Don’t forget your “amazingly nice” tone.)
I normally think after six weeks, and 2-3 calls….it’s time to let it go. Unless the assistant that you’ve now befriended tells you otherwise.
