Dear Mr. Schwartz:
I am interested in being considered for your vacant TV Producer position for your network. I have spent the past 15 years bringing my production expertise to various networks and studios, resulting in the airing of popular sitcoms, game shows, reality shows and documentaries.
From budget development to quality control, I have applied my skills in all areas of TV production to the advantage of my employers. I have on a consistent basis produced various types of shows within budget parameters.
My attention to detail and decision-making capabilities have resulted in little lost production time, and my shows have met all deadlines set by network executives. I have been lauded for the smooth operations on filming sets and have developed strong working relationships with many top directors, assistant producers, cast, and crew.
Also, my strong creative skills have proven to be an asset in areas of script revisions and during the final editing process. I have a keen sense of what will be well-received by viewers and have lent this ability to the successful production of many top-rated cable and network shows.
I have provided a brief list of those professional accomplishments that I feel best illustrate my qualifications:
Produced "Laughing Standing Up," the #1 comedic series for Comedy TV Zone, 2011-14
Served as Executive TV Producer for the children’s series "Travels in my Backyard" for Kiddie Viewing TV, which was nominated for three Emmys (2008, 2010, 2011)
Managed budgets and raised funds for several award-winning documentaries for An Animal Life cable network
Developed and produced "Around Town" segment of local news station, WHLH in Atlanta
Recipient of the David L. Wolper Award for Outstanding Producer of Long-Form Television from the Producers Guild of America for the mini-series "Dream Catcher," 2013
While TV production can be fast-paced and highly stressful, I have successfully managed the many problems and pitfalls that are inherent to this occupation and have consistently met all obligations regarding my responsibilities in a timely and efficient manner. I will continue to bring this professionalism and focus to your organization.
An interview to further discuss my qualifications can be arranged at your earliest convenience. I have enclosed my resume for your review.
Thank you for your consideration.
John R. Romero
