Don't believe us? Check out what our former finalists had to say...

"I entered my spec script EXTANT in the pilot contest because I'd head so much about trackingb and its reputation for helping writers reach the holy grail of representation. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that eight months later I'd be in production, going straight to series on CBS. I know that's a million to one shot, but it happened, and trackingb's tv pilot contest was the very first step."

- Mickey Fisher (contest finalist & now Executive Producer/Creator - "Extant" & "Reverie"). 
"The TrackingB contest changed my life as a screenwriter. As a finalist, my script was read by industry professionals all over town, and I ended up signing with an amazing management company (Benderspink). Not only was the exposure great, but I was touched by the personal dedication the TrackingB staff put into answering questions, giving advice, and offering encouragement along the way. There is no question that this competition is the launching point of my career. Can't recommend it enough!"

-Ashleigh Powell - Finalist (& Now Sold Screenwriter after selling SOMACELL to Warner Brothers!)

The Prize

Five finalists will be promoted on trackingb.com to our community of entertainment industry insiders AND will also be read by each member of our esteemed judging panel who will pick an overall winner.
 

Rules

Scripts must be completely original. This is not a contest for SCANDAL, MODERN FAMILY, or WALKING DEAD specs, or reality shows. We are open to any and all genres and lengths of scripted work. Just make sure the work is the pilot for a TV show and is your own creation in full.

Timeline & Process


All entered scripts will be read by trackingb who will select their top choices. Then, trackingb will consult with the industry panel to get their thoughts (based on concept/summary alone) on the top selections, and take their opinions into account in the selection of five finalists. Judges will read the finalist scripts and select an Overall Winner. Soon after (early August, 2019), the finalists and winner will be announced on trackingb.com.

How to Enter


Final Deadline is: April 29th, 2019 ($115). The entry form will be taken down late afternoon in PST on April 30th. As long as the entry form below is still available, you may enter.
