Announcing the New York Television Festival Script Competition
Posted April 21, 2016
Have you ever had an idea for a scripted TV comedy? Think your workplace or life would make for a good sitcom? Now is the time for you to act.
The New York Television Festival is calling for script submission for TV pilots.
Over the last decade, the NYTVF has distinguished itself an industry leader in the cultivation and fostering of independent artists across episodic storytelling platforms while engaging a wide swath of decision-makers, buyers, agents, and managers as a trusted curator of new voices. With the launch of NYTVF SCRIPTS, we’re thrilled to extend that effort to emerging writers by offering a Festival experience designed to provide maximum exposure, access, and opportunity.
In its inaugural year, NYTVF Scripts is accepting original, half-hour comedy series scripts for consideration by broadcast, cable, and digital platform buyers. To enter, writers must submit a series pilot script (20 to 40 pages), along with an original series overview (up to 4 pages), and a current C.V.
Want to get your script in front of decision-makers across the television and digital landscape, culminating in a week-long Festival that provides a crash course in the TV Industry? Submit to NYTVF Scripts and join the indie television movement.
Please note: at this time NYTVF Scripts is not accepting hour-long scripts in the comedy, dramedy, or drama space, but may be announcing additional script and content submission opportunities at a later date.
Online submission for NYTVF Scripts will be open from 12:00pm (noon) EST on Wednesday, June 1 to 12:00pm (noon) on Wednesday, June 15, 2015.
