TVWriter™ Press Service
Broadening its mission to cultivate opportunities for and about women, SeriesFest is proud to partner with Big Swing Productions (founded by Emmy®- and Golden Globe®-winner Kyra Sedgwick, Meredith Bagby and Valerie Stadler) for the Women Writing Competition to discover and celebrate bold new series with a distinctly female perspective.
The script writing competition gives female artists the opportunity to share diverse ideas through visual media and create unique and powerful roles for women. The winning artist(s) will receive a year-long development deal with Big Swing Productions and a live read of her script with professional actors.
HOW IT WORKS
Interested participants should submit a pilot script for a female-centric episodic story along with a series regular and recurring character descriptions. We are accepting concepts for a 30-minute or 60-minute series. Visit the Women Writing Competition submission page for more information on guidelines, entry materials, entry fees and key dates.
All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges. Finalists will be notified in September 2019 to set up meetings with Big Swing Productions and SeriesFest. A winner will be announced as soon as possible following the interviews. Unregistered submissions will not be reviewed!
