We are a company run by and for writers and filmmakers.
Our objective is to find hot new writers whose careers we can help launch either at the studio or indie levels, or as TV writers (longform, sitcom, not reality). We also work with playwrights and have access to a number of major theaters in the US and England and also work with novelists, as we have access to most of the major publishers. We are particularly keen on comedy writers who can punch up existing material and catch the eye of a Showrunner.
The head of the company Alex Ross has attended over 980 pitch meetings at the studios, most of these with the heads of production. He is one of the few producers who has been able to walk in unproduced writers into meetings of that level.
The company specializes in working with new writers. Amongst others Alex discovered Andrew Niccol (Academy Nominated for THE TRUMAN SHOW) and Iris Yamashita (Academy nominated for LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA).
We take our job very seriously and will work with you in a very nurturing way to get you up to speed.
We work with some very well known and effective producers who are ready, willing and able to pay first time writers to option the right script. If they are interested you get to keep all of the option money - we do not charge a fee.
The winning project will be submitted to dozens of agencies and production companies in the US and Europe. The contest winner and their project will be promoted on our home page in prime territory, so that the hundreds of industry professionals who visit our site can take a look at it.
