Pilots (https://www.pilotstheshow.com)is an episodic playwriting competition in which writers go head-to-head to win the favor of the audience. Each week the writers will present a ten-minute episode based on a theme. Those who fare well will get another episode, those who don't will have to start over with a brand new pilot episode. At the end of the season the two writers with the most consecutive episodes will face off in a final showdown to determine who wins their golden wings and the season's prize.
Season 001 of Pilots will feature all writers who are immigrants and first-generation Americans.
The writers competing in the inaugural season of Pilots include Anooj Bandari, Jayne Deely, Niki Hatzidis, Keurim Hur, and Lilia Shrayfer.

"I am so excited to announce the first public Creative Fellows event from the 2019 Class" said Chie Morita, Deputy Director at Town Stages and Coordinator of the Sokoloff Arts Creative Fellowship Program. "Mark has been specifically curious about how community, collaboration, and conversation can be cultivated and fostered with people with backgrounds different than his own, and how gamification and competition really brings humans of all kinds together. Pilots is such a beautiful way to continue the dialogue and ask these big questions. Pilots' ethos is so in line with ours here at Sokoloff Arts: Let's move that cultural needle and showcase stories we have never heard before."
