Carrie Fisher, Brett Ratner, and Garry Marshall will judge On the Lot’s first round
FOX’s summer Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg reality competition series On the Lot has announced its first-round judges.
The judges are actor and writer Carrie Fisher; director and producer Brett Ratner; actor, writer, producer, and director Garry Marshall; and producer and director Jon Avnet.
Those judges “will select the top 18 finalists” from “a group of 50 applicants, who are sent to Los Angeles to attend a ‘Hollywood Boot Camp,’” Variety reports. “They’ll meet with the four judges and screen their personal submission film; as well as pitch their project; show and edit a short film within 24 hours; and then shoot a one-page scene within an hour.”
They “will serve as judges on the first round,” Variety says, and then others will presumably take their place. A FOX press release that announced the series a year ago said “[j]udges will include a high-ranking motion picture executive, a prominent film critic and a succession of well-respected guest judges, such as directors who are experts in the week’s featured genre.”
