Road to Development: Semifinalists

Here are the semifinalists of the first cycle of “Road to Development” (6 per subscription plan).

Many aspects were factored into this list, and none refer to the quality of the books and scripts that were not chosen. All quarterfinalists (and several that didn't make that list) are equally accomplished, and will still be considered for future cycles, as long as they're in the platform.
