2010 Contest Results

We were thrilled with the high level of talent that entered our first original TV pilot contest and were excited to present the five finalists to our industry judges to read.  Judges were generally impressed with the overall quality (with one already planning to develop further work with a finalist, and others open to meetings and further contact with their favorites).  Our industry panel gathered last night to discuss the finalists and choose an overall winner… Scroll down past the pics for the finalists and winner…
