It seems I just posted about quarter-finals and LAISA’s incredible review of my TV pilot THOSE BENEATH.
Now THOSE BENEATH is a top 1% finalist still in the running for winner of the 2018 Los Angeles International Screenplay Awards.
I hadn’t entered a contest in a while, had never entered LAISA, but I felt my TV pilot, Those Beneath, could be a really good fit.
And look at this line-up of judges:
They sent me a one of the best set of scripts notes ever (I highly recommend).
Those Beneath is a quarter-finalist, top 10%.
Next announcement next week.
Both BLIND PURSUIT (feature thriller) and THOSE BENEATH (TV pilot) are semi-finalists at TRMS Hollywood!
Fingers crossed for more!
Yes! Our debut! And we couldn’t be happier.
Being a part of the great Dallas Law Ladies is a delight. I get to work with three talented, dedicated screenwriters (all those blondes above). We live in four corners of this country, so we have writing retreats two to three times a year in Eden, Utah (yeah it could have been the original garden).
We have a conference call every week where we laugh, cry, gossip, cheer each other on and, yes, we even write. I love these ladies and I’m so proud to be a part of our group.
We will all meet up again at the Austin Film Festival starting October 25, 2017. Cheers, Ladies!
Yay! THOSE BENEATH “Immaculate Conception” is advancing in the 2017 BlueCat Screenplay Competition. Finalists will be announced Sunday.
My new futuristic drama TV pilot THOSE BENEATH “Immaculate Conception” has its first contest placement as a quarter-finalist in the 2017 BlueCat Screenplay Competition. Fingers crossed for advancement!
It’s not the Grand Prize Winner but it’s the closest thing to.
Lilyhammer “Bring Jerry Home” is a crime-drama/dark-comedy spec teleplay about a high ranking Mafioso who testifies against his Mafia Boss and enters the US witness protection program requesting a new life in Lillehammer, Norway where he resumes his Mafia ways under a new identity (a fish out of water) with great success until the avenging Boss discovers his whereabouts.
Even better than the certificate — they praised my work, “We could not be prouder to have your work be an example of the screenplays that our competition is able to discover. … You truly have a gift.”
Wow, just wow.
These guys are great! — SCREENPLAY FESTIVAL 2015 Movie & TV Winners. (I’m in the “Television – One Hour Spec” section.)
Lilyhammer is Netflix’s very first production and one of my all-time favorite shows. (If you like The Sopranos and/or Fargo — TV or movie, you should check it out.)
According to Rolling Stone Netflix and Lilyhammer changed the world of TV.
I wholeheartedly agree.
