In collaboration with our winning writers, Shore Scripts will produce both episodes, making use of our industry connections to find a talented cast and crew. We will look to attach a named actor to each episode to further elevate the show and draw in a larger audience. Once both episodes are live, we will contact commissioners in an attempt to green-light the series.
The writers have the final say on all potential commissioning offers.
This is a great opportunity to get your work commissioned and voice heard in this ever-growing industry. You donít even need to write an episode from scratch. Perhaps you have a screenplay, novel, or stage play that could be adapted to fit this medium.

This is a great opportunity to get your work commissioned and your voice heard in this ever-growing industry. You donít even need to write an episode from scratch. Perhaps you have a screenplay, novel, or stage play that could be adapted to fit this medium.

The response to our inaugural Fiction Podcast Contest has been simply amazing. We received scripts from 5 Continents and in 11 genres; everything from Historical and Musical to Sci-Fi and Thrillers.
Inevitably, this has led to many excellent screenplays unfortunately not advancing this time around. If your screenplay is not on the list, please do not be too disheartened as that doesn't necessarily mean that your writing isn't strong or that your script won't do well in the future.
We would like to thank you once more for showing the courage and ambition to submit your work for consideration.
Persistence is key in screenwriting. Keep writing!
OUR JUDGES HAVE SPOKEN We are proud to announce the TWO GRAND PRIZE WINNERS of our 2020-21 FICTION PODCAST CONTEST! ***
DREAM SEQUENCE by ANDREW ROBINSON Estranged sisters, a blogger, and a neuroscientist reunite when the neuroscientist invents a mysterious device that provides a glimpse into a nightmare dimension.
FOOTLIGHTS: THE TRUE STORY OF OLIVIA MABEL by IAN McNENY & MARTYN EADEN When a Christian podcaster runs across evidence suggesting a small-town internet ghost story might be true, she falls down a well of secrecy, that challenges her faith and shatters her worldview.
NEXT STEPS As we move through development and into pre-production, we will be working with the writers to give feedback and suggestions. Any revisions will solely be written by the writers.
Once we are ready for production, we will leverage our industry roster and external contacts to assemble an immensely talented cast and crew.
Recording may take place in different locations. This allows us to pick from the very best talent from all over the world.
Once the Podcast episode is complete, we will gain exposure from the press, our 50K+ followers, our connections in the industry, podcast sites and forums, to bring about a huge amount of buzz for each show.
We will seek a full series commission for each podcast show by pitching the pilot episode to our connections at production companies, podcast platforms like Audible, Luminary, Spotify, Wondery, and other relevant companies.
NOTE: The writers retain full IP over their work and will have the final say on accepting or rejecting any potential deal which may be offered.
