It’s far turn time for this year’s TVWriter™ People’s Pilot contest, with just 4 weeks left to enter and, you know, upload.
The PP has a long and distinguished history and is all about original series pilots, which have become the preferred type of spec to get into the hot hands of showrunners so they can see how you write when you’re unfettered, unafraid and (sigh) unpaid.
Not that you have to stay that way. In just the past couple of years, Winners, Finalists, or Semi-Finalists of the TVWriter™ contests have been on the staffs of CHICAGO PD, CHICAGO FIRE, PERSON OF INTEREST, THE WALKING DEAD, RIZZOLI AND ISLES, GREY’S ANATOMY, ROME, NTSF:SD:SUV, KILLER WOMEN, ANIMAL PRACTICE, HBO’s upcoming THE LEFTOVERS, and more.
Most recently – like just last week – Jill Weinberger, who once upon a time [placed first and second in two different divisions of our Spec Scriptacular Contest joined Ryan Harris, another TVWriter™ contest alum, on CHICAGO FIRE. Everybody here is beaming with delight.
The current People’s Pilot offers over $5000 worth of prizes, and every entry receives free feedback on where it ranks in terms of both professional standards and its competitors this year.
To repeat: **Only 4 weeks remain in which to enter this year’s contest.** The time to fulfill your destiny is at hand. (Hey, we like portentous moments…especially when they’re real.) Here are the links you need:
