    No doubt. They just set the precedent of being super communicative through the process and then just suddenly went silent. Their perogative of course.

      the website mentioned that the first round, ie writers chosen to be interviewed would be notified the 19th.

      as Lauri said, i also saw something about the 20th.

      last round they had the top 50 that were interviewed before making the final decision. that came from someone who was in the top 50 and had an interview.

      well, i guess nothing wrong with an early acceptance of the rejection to come...

        Agree. They set such a high standard last time for communication, that our expectations are equally high, even while we acknowledge that they owe us nothing more than an email on the 19th/20th.

        I'm struggling to picture fifty people getting interview emails and not a single confirmation outside of the Reddit post. It's literally the equivalent of Willy Wonka's Golden Ticket. Still, I'm inclined to believe the post because that poster had been mostly on track with other notifications and the timings matched up. Add in the drama that they immediately deleted their account when it went viral!

        Oh well, only a few more hours of torture left!

          They just sent this to everyone:


          All applicants will hear back regarding the status of their application by the end of Monday, February 25th!

          We want to make sure we take the utmost care in considering every single application we received, so to do so, we are continuing to read (and re-read) scripts and applications this week.

          Notifications regarding interviews are going out on a rolling basis up until next Monday.

            so it appears some of the interview requests are rolling out now, but they're waiting until Monday 25th to let everyone know.

            curious...

            Congratulations to those who have interviews!

                    So far, it's been reported that invites went out a week ago Friday and again on Thursday just gone. I've yet to hear of any other reports.

                        The person who posted saying there were 11 slots left got the email Thursday.

                          Just curious. Is it like the NFL Draft where they contact their top picks first and work their way down? Or is the order in which they contact the finalists just random?

                            I think it's likely they do it by category: Films, TV Hour, TV Half Hour.

                              Thanks. Since a few people with tv samples said they were contacted last week, I wonder what the remaining slots are for.....if they haven't all been contacted already.
