The writers are on strike? Go get yourself an agent
Quick note here - The WGA is on strike, so, obviously, the writers aren't working, the producers are sticking to existing projects, studio heads have their hands full and guess what all the agents are doing? My bet is - not much. Could be a great time to try to get something in front of one of them. I'm not saying you'll get a job, that would make you a scab, but it's probably a good opporunity to get something read. Here's a list from the WGA of agents who represent film, television and interactive. Pick up the phone and start calling. You never know, it's either talk to you or watch Oprah reruns.
