How close was this contest? The Spec Scriptacular judges had such a difficult time narrowing their selections down that they grumbled throughout the entire process. Everything was so close that having to make these kinds of choices was exceedingly painful. We’re very proud of everyone involved. Our thanks and congratulations!

For those who frequent THE SPEC SCRIPTACULAR mini-site, this list of Finalists is on the SPEC SCRIPTACULAR News Page.

Come back in one week to see which of the above have become our Winners.

Yep, we said next week. It’s too important to make anybody wait any longer than they have to. Next Monday, September 10th, we’ll be posting both the People’s Pilot and Spec Scriptacular Winners together!
