This campaign was all about finding TV drama screenwriters who are primed for success in the marketplace. This season brought us one rising talent that we’re very excited for, and a TV pilot that is pitch-worthy.
Congrats to the winner Rowan Meyer for his work on Lemonlight. A strong writer who we believe is ready for the market. We have set him up with representation and they are currently discussing terms.
Also congrats to Alex Major for his work on Buffalo Nation, a concept that is very well researched and timely. Alex is in discussions with literary reps regarding the representation of the project and potential pitches to networks and streamers.
The finalists were a very strong bunch with some great potential who we look forward to connecting with again. They include:
|Dalilah Nguyen (nu-wang)
|Grant me Insanity
|Rise of the Seven
|The (Poacher’s) Poacher
|Matthew T. Walsh
|The After Light
|The Good Lawyer Pilot
|The Love Vaccine
|The Midlife Misadventures of Jonny Sparks
|The Truth Serum
|The Unfortunate Life of Lookout!
Heads of development and literary representative reviewed all finalists and several finalists were contacted and interviewed. Congrats to all of the finalists for getting the recognition and we look forward to seeing your work in the future as we have high hopes for each of you.
