The Launch Pad Competitions have led to more than 450 signings, 164 projects set up, 68 writers staffed, 7 bidding wars, and 156 appearances on annual best of lists such as the Black List, Blood List, Hit List, and the Young & Hungry List. We are thrilled to introduce the newest group of talented Launch Pad writers.
This year’s Top 25 pilots plunge us into immersive new worlds, bringing us behind the scenes of stage magic and beauty pageants, past prison gates and closed borders, through time and into space. It has been a true pleasure to read the exceptional writing of this year’s finalists, and we are honored to be able to share their innovative work with the world!
(As a reminder: If you entered into the Mentorship Program, or signed up to be part of the Guaranteed Signing or Guaranteed Option prizes, regardless of making the Top 25, you are still in contention for those prizes. Those winners are selected from the entire pool of submissions separately from the finalist rounds, and will be announced alongside the winners)
Now, without further ado, let us introduce you to the 2019 Launch Pad Pilot Competition Top 25!
