Always have a treatment prepared. You want to think about what you are leaving behind after you pitch and that should include a pitch page, talent sheet, format layout and sample story lines. Keep it simple and 3-5 pages max.

In addition ALWAYS know the budget guidelines of the network you are pitching to. ALL networks have an CPH, an average cost per hour, and you should do you due diligence to find out how far they are currently deviating from that CPH at the time of your pitch and for your particular type of show.
