The Pitch for AMC's 'The Pitch' Is Striking Out So Far

Back in April, "Mad Men" network AMC announced its first reality show, called "The Pitch," which would feature ad agencies competing against each other for new business.Three months later, no agency has agreed to participate. Rupal Parekh's comprehensive story provides lists of agencies who have said no, and those who have yet to decline, the pitch from "The Pitch."
