One of the highlights of the annual New York Television Festival, which runs Oct. 22-27, is the Independent Pilot Competition, which features stories spanning all genres. From accounts of actors "rehabilitating" their lives post-career and an "immortal being" working for the FBI to friends taking part in bizarre automotive events, viewers would be hard-pressed to find something that didn't fit their interests. Other highlights of this year's festival include the world premiere screening of The CW's The Carrie Diaries, Samsung's Second Screen Storytellers competition, a send-off to Jersey Shore, a keynote from Justified creator Graham Yost, the Fox Tuesday comedy panel and the Late-Night Writers panel.
