entertainment industry coach question 641: Why did you tell me to sign up for Cynopsis.com?
Cynopsis is about everything television related; what's been bought, who's attached, what's premiering, what's been cancelled, etc. It is a great research tool. The person who asked this is a DP/Operator, and I suggested he subscribe for the free daily email from Cynopsis because even though it's giving high level information which would seem to be important to tv executives, writers, and agents, if you are in another classification and are interested in television you must be "in the know."
For example, today in the development section Cynosis reported that "The CW is bringing another DC Comics super hero to the small screen with plans to adapt Raven into a television series. The project received a script order via Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment and Diego Gutierrez is on board to write and be executive producer. Raven is a half-demon known as Rachel Roth and she is able to enter the minds of others to fight crime all the while remaining dark and secretive."
If this is a project that is of interest to you, now you have some information to start your targeted campaign.
