Web Video / Screen Rant Pitch Meetings

"Actually, it's gonna be super easy, barely an inconvenience."

The Screen Rant Pitch Meetings (originally titled Super Easy, Barely an Inconvenience - Screen Rant Pitch Meetings) are a series of comedic web videos originally by Screen Rant though they are now on their own channel Pitch Meeting.

Ryan George plays a Screenwriter pitching an existing movie to a Hollywood Producer (also played by Ryan George, without his glasses). Most of the humor comes from the Screenwriter's enthusiastic recounting of a famous movie or TV show in a pitch, often accentuating the flaws to the Producer, who in turn is adept at spotting the problematic aspects of whatever he's being pitched but is too much of a profit-obsessed doormat to actually force any change (unless it's for the worse). Further humor comes from the fact that the Screenwriter's story decisions often bring serious questions about his thought process.

Ryan George himself has mentioned on his website that the original idea for the Pitch Meetings series came from John Mulaney's standup routine where he describes re-watching Back to the Future as an adult. Much of the routine takes the form of two execs discussing the movie's pitch together.

The videos, which are normally uploaded on Tuesdays, were originally only found on Screen Rant's YouTube channel, but later got their own channel.

Compare with Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers, which the show has referenced (and guest starred in).

Pitch Meeting provides examples of:


Cocaine Bear

The screenwriter has a script titled "Cocaine Bear", but it sure has a lot of human characters.
