We've received the following e-mail -- might be interesting for some (fanfiction) writers to submit their original work:
The Other Network TV Writing Contest gives you the chance to get your script read by top TV showrunners...

The 2004 comedy contest brought hundreds of entries from all over the U.S. and Canada. Seven winning scripts were read by Bob Odenkirk, Jay Kogen, Cindy Chupack, Jenny Bicks, Bill Oakley & Josh Weinstein, John Riggi, and Alan Zweibel.

Un-Cabaret Multi-Media has optioned several of these scripts and is currently shopping them to agents, producers & networks, including one which has Alan Zweibel attached as Executive Producer.
