entertainment industry coach question 614: I wrote a pilot. Now what do I do?

That depends on your long term objective. The person who asked this question is an actor. So, if you wrote it to act in it, you can shoot the pilot yourself. It would have to be the most exceptional, original, well-written pilot in decades in order to sell it to a network without an agent or an established career.

Now, if you want to pursue a second career as a writer, before seeking out an agent to represent you, make sure you have about 3 spec scripts for other shows. Even if you have a great pilot script, the next question you're going to get is, "So what else do you have?" Be professional and have more to show.
