Rules

We accept pitches for:

  • Scripted television series in ANY genre
  • Original, standalone mini-series (EX: Fargo, True Detective)
  • Webseries pitches intended to be adapted for cable or network television
  • Note: Pitches for reality TV and game shows are no longer accepted. Must be for a scripted series.

Written or video submissions accepted. For written pitches:

  • Anything from a two-sentence logline to a 3-5 page treatment--entirely up to you on how to best present your idea. We don't judge on format, we judge on the idea itself. Extended treatments and supplemental materials (illustrations, etc.) are also accepted. Please do not send full-length screenplays--summaries ONLY. Pitches may be emailed direct.
  • Remove your name and contact information from the materials prior to submitting.
  • Longer submissions are judged on the SAME criteria as short ones, so whatever length you think is best.

For video pitches:

  • Submit a link to the video after registration by emailing idea@scriptpipeline.com. We prefer it be a private link on YouTube, Vimeo, or any other video hosting site or your personal website. *make sure to include the password, if private
  • Videos can be any length, but shorter is typically better. Web series are also accepted, but our judges will only review the first episode and any supplemental pitch materials.

General rules:

  • Concept must be for a scripted television series or mini-series.
  • Adaptations from your own published or produced work (e.g. a graphic novel) are accepted.
  • It is highly advised that you register your concept with the WGA prior to submitting, however it is not required. Script Pipeline will not share your idea with anyone unless you’re chosen as a finalist and give us explicit permission to do so.
  • Previous Script Pipeline writers and former Great TV Show Idea entrants are welcome to submit.
  • Goes without saying, but the concept must be WHOLLY ORIGINAL and not based on an existing series. Even if you have the most amazing spin on Game of Thrones, think of your own original story. Spec scripts of existing shows may be submitted to our TV Writing Competition.
