    What do The Godfather, Big Little Lies, Harry Potter, Crazy Rich Asians and The Handmaid’s Tale have in common?

    They are all based on books. TV networks and film studios love scripts based on books, true stories, etc., but how do you get those rights?

    Intended for any entertainment professional or filmmaker who has ever asked, “How do I get the motion picture and television rights to… something!”, this class answers questions such as what are film and television rights, how do you track down the various kinds rights, how do you talk to agents or authors and begin to make a deal, and much more. Based On will demystify the process, save you a lot of time, money and energy, and help you go as far as you can go before having to hire an entertainment attorney.
