The New York Television Festival and Comedy Central have teamed up to offer aspiring TV writers and producers the opportunity to win $7,500 and a development deal with Comedy Central!
Comedy Central is looking for fun, fresh points of view that fit into the Comedy Central brand of comedy.
The following scripted-comedy formats would apply: sketch, narrative/single-camera sitcom, animated and "late night" comedy (game shows, panel shows, etc.). Non-scripted formats are not applicable for this competition, regardless of hilarity.
What do I need to submit?
- An eight to fifteen (8-15) minute Pilot Presentation
- A shooting script of the episode
- Signed Entry Packet
The submission period will open at 12pm (noon) EST on October 12, 2011 and will close at 12pm (noon) EST on January 27, 2012. All submissions must be received during this time period, without exception.
Finalists will receive designation as 2012 NYTVF Official Artists and be invited to the New York Television Festival, held in NYC in the Fall of 2012.
A screening committee of NYTVF officials will narrow the pool of entrants down to 25 finalists which will be presented to Comedy Central development executives. One winner will be selected by Comedy Central and he/she will receive a development deal from the network. Additionally, Comedy Central may elect to enter into development agreements with additional finalists.
Comedy Central will retain an exclusive option to enter into development deals with all Finalists' Entries for a period of three (3) months following the selection of the Finalists (which shall be on or about February 29, 2012).
