ScreenCraft Names Comedy Winner

The Triple Engagement by Robert Troccolo has been named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2017 ScreenCraft Comedy Screenplay Contest. The script is described as a fun and entertaining romantic comedy that marries concept and character:

After a woman left at the altar twice is given an ultimatum by a psychic that if she doesn’t marry in one year she’ll never marry, she hatches a plan to get engaged to three men and marry whoever shows up.

Kate Erickson's Last Christmas has been named the 2017 Comedy runner-up. The script is a seriocomic and surprising road trip comedy that centers on a woman clinging to her last strand of dignity, who takes her dementia-addled mother and her estranged sister on a road trip to their family cabin for one last Christmas together.

The following finalists comprise the remaiing top ten submissions:

3. Like A Thief In The Night by Kyle D’Odorico
4. H is for Happiness by Lisa Hoppe
5. The Ploy by Stan Himes
6. Quality Time by Mike Costaris
7. Mrs. Bond by Kristi Hall
8. Sam Rockwell Can’t Die by Amy Huckabay
9. Engage & Destroy by Paul Winchell
10. Bingo King by Jason Skorski

In addition to the ScreenCraft team, the jury included the following Hollywood executives: Joseph Garner, producer of THE HANGOVER PART II & III, DUE DATE, WAR DOGS and XOXO, development executive for Bradley Cooper and Todd Philip’s company Joint Effort with a 3-year production deal at Warner Bros.; Maggie Haskins, literary manager at Principato Young, the company behind many of Hollywood’s top comedy talent including Kate McKinnon, Will Arnett, Jordan Peele, John Travolta, Judy Greer, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Ed Helms; Joe Farrell, development executive at Funny or Die Films, the company behind some of the funniest online videos (and now feature films) with access to top Hollywood talent; Jeannette Francis, development executive at STX Entertainment, the Hollywood studio behind blockbuster comedy BAD MOMS and the upcoming BAD DADS; and Cara Masline, literary manager at 3 Arts Entertainment, the production and management company behind such celebrated comedy Hollywood talent as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Louis CK, Maya Rudolph, Kevin Hart, Mindy Kaling, George Lopez, Matt LeBlanc, BJ Novak, James Franco, Charlie Day and more.
