With 20 years of professional experience in the TV/Film industry as a professional pitch writer, producer and development executive, Scott is a champion to the new producer and creator. He was most recently on contract with Relativity Media, and currently positioned as a producer for a pilot with Discovery Channel.
Forging his path into the industry as a general assistant/runner, Scott ultimately served as head of development for Merv Griffin Entertainment, Inc., reporting directly to Griffin. Most infamously, while at MGE, Manville brought to market Lance Armstrong’s autobiography, “Its Not About The Bike“, resulting in a bidding war that delivered the largest offer for life story rights in TV history. He reflects, “It was a time of incredible challenge and growth, working with a group of prolific producers. The opportunity to create original projects to pitch for Merv was an education and experience money can’t buy“.
Scott is CEO and founder of IndiePitch.tv, LLC. a groundbreaking industry service used by hundreds of leading producers and executives sourcing new original concepts for television development and production. As the first online platform to connect creatives from outside the industry with networks and producers, IndiePitch.tv has seen multiple series produced and broadcast globally.
He has periodically served as a contributing writer for NATPE (National Association of Television Program Executives) providing exclusive interview/articles with the likes of Mike Medavoy, Byron Allen, and other titans of industry. He’s also enjoyed four years as Panelist, Judge, and Juror at the Napa Valley Film Festival alongside major studio executives (Netflix, Fox Searchlight, TWC), mentoring writers & filmmakers and discovering new talent in their annual pitch competition.
Scott continues to bolster opportunities for his associates by expanding his interests within the entertainment communities.
