Pitch Your Pilot

Ever had a great idea for a sitcom pilot, but feel like you couldn’t never break into the television industry without any contacts? Well, get to writing and pitch it to the Pilot Project. After submitting a $25 entry fee, you submit your concept and a panel of judges choose the top 150 pilot concepts. Then, the voting goes to the people to narrow down the field to five, who then get to travel to L.A. to pitch their idea in person. The winner will continue to be involved with the show as a producer and will also become the focus of the Pilot Project reality show (sounds like Project Greenlight, huh?).

Anyone thinking what I’m thinking? A sitcom about the Ping, starring Paul and me, with walk-ons by other Pingers. It’d have lots of Oreo product placements, of course. And it would have to be set in the Outback, just because, mate.

I've got the perfect title: "That's my Ping!"

Add a new wacky gadget every week (Chillow, Roomba, etc..), and end every show by answering posts by stupid Pingers..even possibly bringing them on, just to kick the crap outta them..

I like the sound..I'll chip in towards the $25. :)

Hi, am I supposed to give you my concept or just my Pilot? Oh, also can 12 (Almost 13) year olds enter?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
