Today’s official announcement: TV WRITER.COM CONTESTS CLOSE IN LESS THAN A WEEK

Gang–

Holy crap!!!

Only 5 days left to enter the current PEOPLE’S PILOT and SPEC
SCRIPTACULAR writing contests sponsored by TVWriter.Com and
Manner Movie Ltd. of Hong Kong. Entries are due by the end of the
day, Friday, June 1st.

Yes, for those who’ve been asking because we’ve obviously been
unclear, you’ve got all day Friday to get this job done. Whew.

And, if you’ve never heard of us before, here are the important bits:

The PEOPLE’S PILOT is for spec pilot scripts for original series.
Supplemental material such as series proposals is all well and good,

but all entries MUST include a pilot teleplay.

Your series can be any genre – drama, action, sitcom, reality, game,
lifestyle, animation, kids’ show, you name it – and can be intended for
broadcast networks, cable channels, PBS, even local stations,
regardless of country. All we ask is that your entry be written in
English so we can read it!

The SPEC SCRIPTACULAR is for spec scripts written for current or
recent TV series. Your completed teleplay can be for any existing

drama, action show, or sitcom, or for an original TV movie in any
genre, and can be intended for broadcast networks, cable channels,
PBS, and local stations in any country (as long as your spec is written
in English.)

You can find out about the prizes and do the entry thing, blah, blah,
blah at:

Speaking of prizes, let me be upfront here. Sure, there’s money and some goodies, but the most important prizes any aspiring can get are public acknowledgement and approval, and, above all else,
professional credibility. TVWriter.Com gives you all those things
in spades. In fact, that’s why we exist.

Don’t just sit there. Write!

Hard at Work Here

…setting up this new version of TVWriter.Com, mostly trying to figure out how to best use the blog elements so the site can be as entertaining as it is informative. (Note to self: “Informative” is not a funny word.)

What Showbiz is All About

Been thinking about posting snippets, vids, etc. like the one above from other blogs and showbiz web pages, sort of like expanded tweets. (Hey, don’t forget to follow us.) Also about recruiting my working friends and long-time site users for blog work here. Lots of ideas percolating, but I can always use more because I’ve worked in the biz long enough to realize that picking the brains of others is, you know, easier than giving myself a headache by thinking too much. Bottom line: Your suggestions will be hotly welcomed. Either as Comments or in e-mail, whatever.

1 WEEK LEFT TO ENTER TV WRITER.COM CONTESTS

Gang–

OMG!!!

Only 1 week remains in which to enter the current PEOPLE’S PILOT
and SPEC SCRIPTACULAR writing contests sponsored by TVWriter.Com
and Manner Movie Ltd. of Hong Kong. Entries are due on or before June 1,
2012 via the online upload forms for each contest.

All of you of course know exactly what the contests are, but on the off
chance that you’ve missed our barrage of publicity (okay, so it’s really
been a kind of a dribble), here’s a quick rundown of what’s up:

The PEOPLE’S PILOT is for spec pilot scripts for original series. We
welcome supplemental material such as series proposals, but all entries
MUST include a pilot teleplay.

Your series can be any genre – drama, action, sitcom, reality, game,
lifestyle, animation, kids’ show, you name it – and can be intended for
broadcast networks, cable channels, PBS, even local stations,
regardless of country. All we ask is that your entry be written in
English so we can read it!

The SPEC SCRIPTACULAR is for spec scripts written for current or
recent TV series. Your completed teleplay can be for any existing drama,
action show, or sitcom, or for an original TV movie in any genre, and can
be intended for broadcast networks, cable channels, PBS, and local
stations in any country (as long as your spec is written in English.)

PEOPLE’S PILOT & SPEC SCRIPTACULAR Prizes include:

* $500 from Manner Movie Ltd.

* Mentorship from producer-writer Larry Brody of TV Writer.Com
(See LB’s amazing credits here:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0111046/)

* Inclusion in the TV Writer.Com List of Recommended Writers

* 1 year of Gold Plan Spotlighted Screenplay Posting Service at
ScreenwriterShowcase.Com

* 1 year ScriptPimp.Com Writers Database Membership

Entry forms and full info on rules, prizes, and eligibility for the
PEOPLE’S PILOT can be found at http://www.peoplespilot.com

Entry forms and full info on rules, prizes, and eligibility for the
SPEC SCRIPTACULAR can be found at http://www.specscriptacular.com

So far this year entries have been on the light side, but the last week
usually is a big one. Fewer entries mean a better chance for everyone
who enters, though, so maybe this will turn out to be a Good Thing. I’d
like it to be The Chance of a Lifetime for everyone, but, hey, that’s me.

Hope everyone who gets this email enters one of the contests because,
just between us, creating entertainment for millions of others is head and
shoulders above just watching what someone else has done. At least,
it certainly has been for me.

You too can achieve your dream, but you’ve got to HURRY!
