About Key to the City
Each morning Andy wakes up in a different body. One day they’re a stockbroker in Manhattan, the next they’re a high schooler in the Bronx. Think of Andy as the soul or embodiment of New York City.
Andy can be young, old, any ethnicity, male or female – each new day brings a new story and experience. Andy doesn’t know their origin or how they manifested into being, but they’re driven by an inexplicable pull to help others. Andy has 24 hours in each story to uncover their “mission” and piece together clues that point them towards the purpose of being in this new body.

What We’re Looking For
From dramas to thrillers to feel-good storylines, we’re looking for original and creative story ideas for a day in the life of Andy. We want writers who can paint a picture with their words and truly bring the sights, sounds, and smells of New York City to life.
Help us tell stories of love and loss, humor and hope, as well as showcase what makes NYC truly remarkable. Pitches may be submitted in written format or verbally via audio file. Please limit audio time to two minutes max.
