Sony Pictures Television Diverse Writers Program selects sixteen participants for a six-week professional development program in which they will have discussions with creative executives, producers, seasoned writers and showrunners with the aim of honing their skills in writing scripted television.
In addition to having the opportunity to network with industry professionals, each writer will be assigned a mentor from SPT’s robust pool of producers and writers.
At the conclusion of the training portion of the program, participants will meet with SPT showrunners and producers and be considered for potential staffing opportunities on US productions.
SPT will also select up to four writers with whom to develop pilot scripts for both comedies and dramas. This initiative is part of SPT’s commitment to providing opportunities to talented artists of diverse backgrounds.
