Doreen Holmes joined Lucas Talent over a decade ago, and has been in the film and television industry for over 15 years. Her clients include a mix of emerging and very experienced screenwriters, story editors and show runners who work in all genres of television and film including live action drama, comedy, animation and documentary/lifestyle, covering the pre-school to primetime demographic. Rather than taking on a particular project, she takes on writers with a body of work so she can pitch them for opportunities within film and television as well as pitch their original series and feature projects. Her goal is to help develop her clients’ careers based on their interests, strengths and market trends by guiding and promoting them and their projects within the major entertainment industry centers in Canada and the USA.
Although she’s drawn to children’s and youth material, she does look across all genres for original, well crafted, character-driven projects. She is not able to consider manuscripts – only film and television screenplays and pitches, please. She is more than happy to talk to any writer considering the television world.
