Ooh, the French actually put my name on this promo. It’s way too small for anyone to read, but still….

So if you’re planning on entering your spec episode of a current or recent series or an original script with potential as a TV movie, special, or even pilot, and sharing in the over $10,000 worth of prizes and entry extras (free Feedback!) that await, it’s definitely time to get that baby written, polished, and uploaded too.

  1. “So if you’re planning on entering your spec episode…or even pilot…it’s definitely time to get that baby written, polished, and uploaded too.”

    Am I correct in inferring that pilot scripts are welcome for the Spec Scriptacular in addition to the People’s Pilot? Or have I read something incorrectly?

    1. After much thought, and not a little argument, we’re looking at pilots this way: By the definition of the word “Special” they fit into the TV Movie/Screenplay/Special category. That means the competition will be a bit broader than in the People’s Pilot, but we wanted to do all we could for writers who missed the 2014 People’s Pilot deadline of June 1st. They’ve worked damn hard and deserve their shot.
