Even though I am not necessarily a published author, should I have an agent signed up and ready to go, just in case?

Thanks for the input, but what if I am approached by a Producer directly, shouldn't I have an agent at this point in time. Also, wouldn't an agent find me very interesting if that were to happen?
Any time you're going to enter into a contract, it's good to have an agent on your side. And, if producers have found you noteworthy, then it would be worth mentioning to a potential agent.
Doing it on my own is an interesting thought, but since I don't know the ropes when it comes to negotiating, wouldn't it be worth the money to have an agent on hand?
You will learn a ton from the author, Marilyn Ross. She has been on both sides of the industry. The title is "The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing: Everything You Need to Know to Write, Publish, Promote and Sell Your Own Book" - the best reference.
Thanks for the input RGNestle, see my reply to MT Dreamer to see my dilemma. What if I am approached by a TV producer asking me to "Interview" about a story. I have no clue what to say or do, ergo an agent would be nice. Really baffled by this.
If I were approached by a producer, I would absolutely get an agent. That fact alone would be one of the main reasons for getting an agent. It also would be one of the main reasons an agent would want to speak with YOU; good money making odds! :)
Thanks, Well this happened so fast I don't know what hit me. We were contacted by a Reality show producer, and we were interviewed within days.
We didn't get any money for this, and I think I should have had an agent. So I missed out on this one.
