This is a tremendous opportunity to work with Glenn Howerton, and the
rest of the producers of IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA.

the following guidelines:

- You only get one shot. Pick your best project and submit it.

- Any genre EXCEPT HORROR.

- If your idea is a feature, submit the completed script.

- If your idea is a series, submit the pilot.

- INCLUDE A LOGLINE. ANY SUBMISSIONS WITHOUT A LOGLINE WILL NOT BE
READ.

They are looking for writers right away, so once your script is the
best it can be, send it to:

I love the writing on that show.
Sociopathic comedy is a personal fave! ;D

So who's gonna submit a script?

Regards,
E.D.

Which kinda sucks, gotta do it old style..

I'm surprised that they want the submissions by snail mail, but they're in charge.

There's no due date?

Yes! Brett, you rule!

This is easily my favourite show on TV.

But damn, snail-mail from the UK = mega snail mail... But if there's no mention of a closing date... ;-)

Now, time to decide whether they would prefer features or television. I'm thinking maybe television would be more appropriate, due to their track record with that.

Waaah

First of all, I thought they wanted them asap
So I specifically got my shit together, sat up til 2 in the morn, revising my pilot and then printed it out and posted it the next morn.
If I knew I had more time I would have had someone look it over..

Damn
And they also state " one shot"

Ah well

Hooray!

And they've specified they're looking for new material to produce.
So, I guess this isn't a cattle call for writers for their existing show.

Yeah, that's the impression I got from the PitchFest memo too.
Which is why I've been working on it all weekend.  
Alas though, it seems Mr. Howerton's Twitter paints a slightly diffy tale.  :-/

Yeah, same here. Have been neglecting my social life for the past 48hours, instead spending time doing a major rewrite on something! Oh well, I guess it will still be better to get it in to them sooner rather than later.

I imagine I'll ping them something mid-week, now that I can relax a bit.

I hope, since not stated, they don't have a problem with people participating outside the US.  That would be a shame.
