Hi everyone! I am a semi-finalist in an online Pilot-Pitching contest, hosted by the New York Television Festival!
My idea is a Star Trek sitcom called “Leave it to Sulu”, which will take place in the Star Trek universe, but have sitcom themes and conventions. It’ll be like Cheers, 300 years in the future! If I win the contest, I hope to have George Takei reprise his role of Hikaru Sulu.
Read my pitch below, or go watch the video of me attempting to pitch in 1 minute at the website, and if you like what you read/see, vote for me!
I am listed under “Duncan: Leave it to Sulu”.
Actually watching my pitch is not necessary to vote, but it would be nice if you watched them all.
In order to see the video, you should be running Internet Explorer, and using a PC- macs do not work, unless you’re running something called “boot camp”.
Voting runs today (Wednesday the 23rd) through Friday the 25th)
12 a.m. - 12 a.m. PST (3 a.m. - 3 a.m. EST). Please vote as soon as possible!
The finalists will pitch to a celebrity panel of executives at the 2006 NYTF, and then the winner will get an $8,000 network TV pilot production deal. This is very exciting, so please vote!

This idea is not, as yet, affiliated with Star Trek, George Takei, or any of the Roddenberries. Just an idea whose time has come.
X-posted everywhere- if you know anyone who might be interested, please pass on the info.
