TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES | Comedy | Lesley Hennen, Helene Griffin & Max Rasmussen
When the high school seniors in Mr. Blick’s Media Studies class are assigned to make a podcast about their hometown of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico; they uncover a secret within the walls of the school that puts their lives at risk.
Each Winner will be awarded a grant of $5000 to produce their pilot episode whilst Shore Scripts will leverage our industry roster and external contacts to assemble an immensely talented cast and crew for each project.
Once the pilot is produced, we will seek to commission a full series for the winners by pitching the pilots to our connections in production companies and podcast platforms like Audible, Realm, Luminary, Spotify, and Wondery.
NOTE: The writers retain full IP over their work and will have the final say on the production process and whether to accept or reject any potential deal which may be offered.
