The TV Ratings Guide is looking for its first batch of original series, set to premiere on the website in 2017, contributor Jonathan Ducote announced today. In a statement he said "The TV Ratings Guide is thrilled to be entering the developing process to find our first few original series. We could not be more excited, and we can not wait to see how this turns out." Submissions are now open to find the first original written series for The TV Ratings Guide to pick up a short written pilot for. The TV Ratings Guide has requested that all readers start sending in their submissions now. Readers will be required to go in the comments below this press release, and submit a short premise of what their series will be about. The deadline is Friday, September 23rd. The best eight of those will be picked up to pilot by The TV Ratings Guide, those that are picked up to pilot will be required to send in a paragraph or two summarizing the pilot episode. Then the best six of those will be ordered to a written series. Readers may send in a pitch for a drama, reality, comedy, or game show. One reader may send in more than one submission. In a closing statement, Ducote said that "After we have picked up the final shows to series, the winners (the shows picked up to series) will be allowed to write episodes, or plot summaries of each episode, and they will be posted here at The TV Ratings Guide. We will order ten written episodes for first seasons of each show." Please note that the winner whose show(s) is/are picked up to series do not have to write anything, they just may bask in their glory of being winner of the tournament. He also stated that "We love this new, innovative idea that has been in the works for a while here, and we can not wait to see what becomes of it. We love the idea, and we hope that our readers will too."
