The frustrating thing is that nearly all Production Companies and Agencies don't accept unsolicited material. Which makes it very difficult for new talent to be found.
This isn't an accident. No one is actually looking for new talent.
It's difficult to accept when you start out producing creative work (of any kind) because it seems ridiculous that producers, agents, TV companies wouldn't be looking for budding geniuses, but they're actually just trying to make money from what's there already in as simple a way as possible.
Many of the people running creative industries have no creativity themselves and don't know how to recognise it. And true genius often breaks the existing structure or is so antithetical to it that it is passed over and ignored.
The last 70 years are littered with examples of this.
