Together with our exclusive competition partners Endgame Entertainment and Fourth Wall Management, we are thrilled to announce the Top 50 for the 2017 Launch Pad Pilots Competition.
With over 250 success stories, including seeing writers signed, writers staffed, and their projects set up, we are thrilled to have our latest batch of writers onboard, and to see this next round of finalists going forward. With our competition growing every year, it enables us to bring not only new, unbelievably talented writers into the fold, but to pursue even more producing and representation partners to come along for the ride—allowing us to provide even more opportunities for those writers.
This competition’s Top 50 pilots contain a little bit of everything, and then some. From time traveling assassins to alternate reality 20th Centuries, to space-roaming interstellar bands to a couple with the entire universe out to get them, from a woman trying to escape her witchy past to one who’s a bit preoccupied looking for her Mr. Rochester, from early American serial killers to an early American feminist stuck with the Pilgrims, utopic societies to taco trucks to the Hollywood Hills — you’d be hard-pressed to find a story, genre, or character that’s unrepresented.
So, without further ado, let us introduce you to the 2017 Launch Pad Pilots Competition Top 50!
(As a reminder: If you selected one of our add-on prizes at time of entry, but did not advance to the Top 50, you are still in contention to win those prizes. In fact, every competition since we began featuring add-on partner packages has featured winners who did not make the initial finalist round.)
