WRITER / EXECUTIVE RELATIONS PROTOCOL -
Writers Vault is a television industry service that places
the highest priority on the protection and discretion of its
subscribing Writers and Industry Executives. The most critical
element that supports this unique service is the continued
confidence and support by our subscribing television executives
and companies. It is important for all subscribing writers
to understand the demands each executive is immersed in, and
that they are in fact involved in a very specialized process.
Even though the foundation of that process is collaboration,
they are very discerning about with whom, and why they collaborate.
Executives and Producers as a whole do not take
unsolicited inquiries. As requested in our agreement with
our member executives, only when they request to contact a
writer (as reflected in the writers Project Status Page) do
they wish to discuss that specific project. We then provide
the executive with the writers direct contact information,
and it is the executive's sole discretion as to when or if
they contact the writer. If the executive does not contact
the writer within a week, we ask that the writer contact us
and we will send the executive a reminder of their request.
If an Executive has "reviewed" any
project, or has placed a status of "under consideration"
on any project posted, those statuses mean exactly and only
that. A typical development executive usually manages about
a dozen projects that are in various stages of development
or production at a network, along with a larger slate of projects
that are in development in-house at their company under option.
In addition to those priorities are the scouting and acquisition
of new projects such as those posted within the TVWritersVault.com
database. New projects are usually going to be addressed after
more urgent priorities are met with shows that they have in
production. For this reason we prohibit our writers from making
any unsolicited calls to our member Executives regarding simple
"reviewed" or "under consideration" statuses.
Those are given to you as a courtesy for your own protection.
When a company or Executive engages any Writer
member in discussions or negotiations for the purchase of
a project, you the Writer will have direct access and communications
with those executives via any representative or entertainment
attorney of your choice. We work to promote the relations
and creations of all of our writers and do not take any form
of participation from either side beyond the introduction
and promoting of a Writer's project within The
Television Writers Vault.
The project status report provided to all writers
upon approval and posting of projects is privileged information
as a courtesy to our writers. Executives are under agreement
to report back to us any writer from our website who contacts
them without solicitation. We reserve the right to remove
that writer's projects from our database with no reimbursement
of fee. Only upon "Requesting Writer Contact" will
we then forward your contact information to the executive
and they will call you directly. Thank you for respecting
our policies, as it preserves our relations with the industry
executives who buy your shows.
Our goal is to build our reputation as a premiere
creative source for television industry executives and companies.
We will do that by protecting and preserving our executive
relations, and fulfilling yours and the executive's goal of
connecting with the next hit television property.
We wish you the best of success-
