Hey guys,

An old series the company I worked for pitched has just gotten a nibble from a potential distributor. Their initial email suggests to me (and the series creator) that the distributor is not looking to finance it themselves but hoping we've made new episodes or something of that nature.

This sounds like something we can work with if we can get some sort of contract where if we find sponsors they'll give us distribution. I have only a very cursory knowledge of financing something like this.

So, among other things.

1. What's the right thing to say to convince them to enter into such an agreement with us?
2. Where can we find potential sponsors?
3. What big obvious thing have I not even thought of?
