In an effort to produce innovative television programming at low costs, Fox21 has formed a partnership with the Slamdance Film Festival.
A production division of 20th Century Fox Television, Fox21 will sponsor the newly initiated Slamdance original teleplay competition in the hope of discovering evocative TV scribes.
The partnership will be profiled at the 2005 fest when Fox21 awards a blind script deal worth up to $45,000 to the teleplay competition winner.
The first-place winner will receive the prize during the fest’s awards gala on Jan. 2.
Competition’s semifinalists will be revealed Jan. 1.
Slamdance will take place Jan. 21-28 in Park City, Utah.
