In total 1,053 entries were received across 7 categories.
A note on the finalist selections: up to five finalists in each category were named, with Teleplay maxing out at five due to the number of high-quality pilots we received. The TV division received close to 300 entries total, whereas Adaptation and Media received less than 50 each. As we typically do with every Script Pipeline competition, we’ll be touching base with a few writers who didn’t make the cut to see what other material they have, as their writing overall was well above average.
The 2016 First Look Project season opens April 15th.
