We’re so excited to see Pilgrim’s COO Gretchen Stockdale featured as Broadcasting & Cable‘s Top Dealmaker in the August 2016 issue! This list features the top class of B&C Dealmakers and highlights the best stuff on-screen, these dealmaking productions are highly serialized and never end in a single night. Behind the scenes, it’s a jumble of wildly fluctuating episode orders, scrambles for talent and platform tussles. Today, negotiating a satisfying deal—let alone one that blazes a trail in the fast-changing industry—takes a lot of creativity and a big reservoir of patience.

This year’s class of B&C Dealmakers has those qualities and many more. Like the best stuff on-screen, these dealmaking productions are highly serialized and never end in a single night. As the Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel at Pilgrim Studios, Gretchen highlights her most memorable recent deal with ‘The Runner’, the biggest ways the deals have changed and the two major sticking points in closing deals.
