William Maurer's 1-Hour Drama Pilot "In The Cut" Wins a TV Writer's Award

"In The Cut" scores a 9.15 and wins 2nd Prize in a very close race in the 22nd TV Writer "People's Pilot" competition. In fact, it was the closest race in the history of the People's Pilot.  


Feedback from head judge, Larry Brody:

Will's ability to create multi-dimensional characters, each with their own unique voice, had me hooked from page 1. His fresh  perspective of story, structure and plot had this script firing on all cylinders. I personally think Will's writing is outstanding and will be watching his career with great interest.
