Script Pipeline Success Story: Disney Hires Contest Writer
Screenwriting Competition entrant Glenn Farrington was staffed on the Disney TV show Kickin' It as a writer.
Although Glenn didn't place in the competition, based on his writing sample, Script Pipeline helped link him with manager Andrew Kersey (Kersey Management), who later signed him.
