Film & TV Development

Jingyi Shao

I regularly partner with writer-director Jingyi Shao to develop key art and pitch materials for his film & television projects.

To date, we’ve sold two feature films to MAKEREADY and Disney and have two television series in development. 

Here are a few of my favorite pieces from our partnership:


Upcoming basketball dramatic television series created by Jingyi Shao and executive produced by Jay Williams (NBA player, ESPN analyst).


Pitch development

Writers Jingyi Shao & Henry Chen developed a high school drama loosely based on Justin Lin’s iconic coming-of-age film Better Luck Tomorrow. To pitch the series, we created an actual, physical year book as a leave-behind for studios executives. Executives were impressed – and the series was sold.
