Script Writer Contest

I had absolutely no idea this was happening. I just happened to stumble across it on my Facebook feed. I'm surprised there wasn't an official public announcement made; unless there was, and we just didn't get the memo, although we rarely miss stuff like this.

Anyway... better late than never, but you've got only 5 days left (as of today) to submit your entry.

Will Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment partner James Lassiter, have joined forces with the ANA Alliance for Family Entertainment (a group of national advertisers dedicated to finding and supporting family content) to find talented, undiscovered TV scriptwriters in the USA.

You're asked to submit either your 30-minute comedy or one-hour drama script by 1pm PST, on March 21, 2013.

In the 30-minute comedy category, one winner will win a meeting with Overbrook Entertainment, an opportunity to get their comedic script further developed, and $5,000.

In the 1-hour drama category, one winner will also win a meeting with Overbrook Entertainment, an opportunity to get their dramatic script further developed, and $5,000.

For the full list of eligibility requirements, as well as how to submit your entry, click HERE.

Below, Will and James talk about the contest, which was apparently launched a month ago, but, again, I'm just now learning about it:
