Arrow Free New Tv Pilot Contest From Overbrook Ent.

Just an FYI for TV Pilot Writers that may not have heard about this.

Overbrook Entertainment is Will Smith's company.

It's FREE. The entry window is tight: 2/21 - 3/21. They want FAMILY oriented comedy or drama pilots.

From the (extensive) eligibility requirements:

"Script must NOT be under current consideration for another contest, competition or festival"

Also, they really have some picky formatting requirements, just FYI

One of the rules is you have to be a US citizen physically living in the US.

Ah, I see that. No biggie. Thanks for the heads up.

Could be a great opportunity.

It seems the rules, while making things more convenient for them, will exclude many people (you have to be a US citizen physically living in the US).

I'd be worried more about getting the best product, but maybe I'm missing the reasoning for that rule?

Best of luck to anyone trying for it.

And no co-written scripts either.

I plan on entering this contest. I thought I did have a script that would work, but the guidelines of the contest completely ruled out my script. So I'm challenging myself to write another pilot in a short time frame. I discuss this further on my blog if you would like to check it out. Link is below. Good luck to all who enter!
