TCF TV Pilot Selected by the New York Television Festival
We’re proud to also announce that TCF-student TV pilot Re-Committed has been officially selected to be a part of the New York Television Festival’s Independent Pilot Competition! This festival is the premiere television festival in the country, with many of the major broadcast and cable networks sponsoring the event. From the press release:
With the most submissions in the history of the Independent Pilot Competition – up 40% from last year – the quality of the entries keeps getting better and better, and the TV industry has taken note,” said NYTVF Founder and Executive Director Terence Gray. “We are thrilled to be in a position to offer the Official Selections access to over 50 key players in the industry, and believe that there is arguably no better way for up and coming, independent creatives to connect with key decision makers at networks and studios than by participating in the Festival. In fact, our partners have upped the ante in 2011, guaranteeing 12 development deals via the IPC and our additional contests and competitions, up from three in 2010.
Of the 48 selections, only 3 are student submissions, the other two being a pilot from Chapman University (with budget of $12,000) and a pilot done by USC (Southern Cal) graduate students. It feels good to see the University of Alabama right up there with them, and other non-student produced independent pilots. Re-Committed is now competing on both coasts!
