Thank you to all the talented writers who submitted to the 2018 WeScreenplay Television Competition. We received over 1,000 entries that made us laugh, cry, and read on the edge of our seats. Most importantly, so many of these projects had such important messages about the world and the human condition. Narrowing these projects down was incredibly difficult, and everything at this stage has been read by at least 4 judges.
After these reads and internal deliberation, we’ve narrowed it down to the top 25 finalists.
We want to sent a huge congratulations to everyone advancing and recognize once more everyone who advanced to the semifinals even if they didn’t make the next round. Please congratulate these finalists for their accomplishment!
These finalists will be read by our readers once more and then the top scripts in each category will by our industry jury to choose the winners. The jury includes network executives and literary managers from Comedy Central, Heroes and Villains, and MANAGE-MENT.
