Top 50 Pilots - 2019 JumpStart Writing Competition

Roadmap Writers is excited to announce the Top 50 pilots for the 2019 JumpStart Writing Competition.

The scripts from this year's competition spanned every genre under the sun and moved readers to feel a wide range of emotions. We laughed, we cried, and sometimes even had to sleep with the lights on.

JumpStart leverages the reach and resources of Roadmap Writers to advocate for these talented emerging voices and put their work in front of dedicated and hungry industry professionals. This year's judging panel includes execs and reps from companies such as Echo Lake, Good Fear, Circle of Confusion, MGM, Lit Entertainment, Zero Gravity, and many more.

So while we still have a several weeks until we announce our Grand Prize winners in November, we just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for being a part of this year’s competition.

And now we’re pleased to announce the...
