How to pitch a movie idea

I'm not sure if this should go in the writing section or the open discussion section of the forum, so I've posted it in both. Hopefully that's allowed.

In any case, I have a movie idea that's...well...really good. So good in fact that I honestly believe that it could easily make for a blockbuster. I realize that people say this all the time, but I truly feel that my idea far surpasses anything I've seen or read about in recent times.

My question is this: if I were to write a synopsis and then pay a professional writer to rewrite it properly for me, to whom do I contact to pitch the idea? Or rather, what steps do I take in hopes of making this idea become a reality?

My apologies for clearly knowing nothing about this sort of thing. I'm a small time producer of sports based content. I know absolutely nothing about scripts and such.

Thanks again. :)

You must be represented by an agent or no one will even read it for liability reasons.

Many threads on this in the TCB forum.
