No Pilots for Contest Winners

By Sergio Published on .

The winners of MySpace, Fox, and the Producer’s Guild of America’s “The Storyteller Challenge” will not have their projects shot for a pilot, NewTeeVee reports. The contest offered a $25,000 prize and a development deal with Fox, but neither Nack Hagen’s “The Paranormalists” nor Will Hartman’s “Tough Love” will get pilots, mostly due to the WGA’s strike. “The WGA is holding sway over any development happening,” Hartman said. “I didn’t want to be one of the guys who gets an opportunity at the expense of someone else.” Under the terms of their win, Hartman and Hager are still able to pitch any new idea for a show to Fox.
