Second scripts?

So if they requested a second script from you that means you made it to the next round?

I didn't know they required other scripts. Anyone else able to shed light on this subject?

it's Disney/ABC's practice to request additional (original, i think) material from applicants who make it past the first round. they want to know that the writer is able to come up with something beyond a spec of existing shows

Anyone hear any updates? Friends who have moved on to the next round?

I didn't get any notice, but I'd still love to know when/if people get selected.

My understanding of the additional material was that it could be spec OR original, just that they expected you to have additional material.

It should also be noted that per some rule changes, at that stage in the game you also need industry references.

I'm guessing you mean it was the semi-finalists that were asked to submit a second script, am I right? That is, those who make the first of the two cuts, whittling the number down to 60, before they pick the 8 fellows from the 28'ish finalists, who come in for 3 days of interviews?

In any case, I'm wondering if anyone has received their phone interview from ABC/Disney, for the 2011-2012 fellowship?

And, incidentally, the second script that's required is not necessarily original material, and the purpose is not to show that you can do original work.

Thanks ...
