Between binging entire seasons just to keep up and a new streamer being created every 14 seconds, it’s pretty clear: we’re in a golden era of TV. WeScreenplay wants TV enthusiasts with great pilots. Our professional readers will provide feedback, and we’ll highlight our favorite scripts to the industry (starting with our pretty sweet jury).
PLUS this year, WeScreenplay will be inviting winners to our very first TV Writing Lab! Writers will participate in hands-on workshops, tackle meetings with industry professionals, and learn from current television writers. So what are you waiting for?

The top 3 winning scripts in both 1 hr and 1/2 hr pilot categories will be invited to WeScreenplay’s Virtual TV Writing Lab!
In the lab, winners will take video meetings with development executives, experience a mock TV writer’s room with currently working TV writers, and further develop their scripts so they’re ready to take out to Hollywood and beyond. It’s an exciting schedule of events that will help you further your career — all from the comfort of your own home.
Additionally, our top scripts are read by our incredible industry jury and the winners get access to ongoing mentorship from WeScreenplay including an initial phone call, guidance for drafting query letters, research methods for finding the right representation, prep before big meetings, and strategic planning for next steps in their careers — all based on the writer’s specific goals.
