Don’t consider this test shoot to be prescriptive, but it will give you an idea of the world we were setting up.
The first episode will be re-scripted and re-filmed but is not currently open for entry.
The final episode will be written after all the other episodes and is not currently open for entry.
Obviously, this is a voluntary participation exercise but if you submit a script we have to own the copyright. We don’t want to get into a situation where one of your ideas accidently permeates into one of the episodes and we are in a quagmire legally.
It is a condition of entry that you transfer all intellectual property rights in the script to us.
We will credit all contributors (following AWG guidelines) but we cannot return scripts.
Scripts must be the original work of the writer. By entering the competition, you are acknowledging that you have secured all necessary rights, permissions or authorities.
Register if you will be participating.
Pick an episode you like and start writing! If you have a better idea than the one in the premise, a better story or character arc, idea or sub-character go for it. We want your best ideas.
Deadline for first round submissions is October 5th 2017. If you want feedback on your idea, premise, or draft you can submit a draft it and we will get back to you within 48 hours.
Once selected, the episode writers will be invited to participate in a virtual writer’s room to bring everything together and finish off the scripts.
Submissions must include the author’s full name, address, phone number and email.
If you have any questions please feel free to email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
