Objective

The basic fact about the television business is that in order to get into it you, the writer, must have at least 3 great spec episodes written for existing shows. These episodes are your calling card. They demonstrate that you have what it takes to write "on assignment." In other words, they show that your writing can meet the demands of a show's individual (we would never say "peculiar") style.

The Spec Scriptacular gives you a chance to show your stuff in 3 categories: Sitcoms, Action/Dramas, and Screenplay/MOW/Specials.

Deadline/Entry Fees
