Aspiring television writers, fire up your laptops and brew some coffee: The Warner Bros. Television (WBTV) Writers’ Workshop is looking for new talent. (Warner Bros. is a division of Time Warner No. 37 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list)
From May 1 to May 31 the WBTV Writers’ Workshop will be accepting applications from writers looking to start and further their careers in television. Ten lucky applicants will be selected for the program, which runs from October 2017 through April 2018.
Writers accepted into the program participate in weekly lectures from showrunners, directors, actors and agents currently working in television. In addition, each participant will be required to complete a new spec script in a “simulated writers room” under the same deadlines found in a show currently under production. How participants fare during this exercise determines whether they are selected for a possible position on a Warner Bros. show.
While there are no guarantees that participants will land a position, scripts will be reviewed by showrunners the people who make the ultimate decisions.Hear from successful alumni in this series of “back story” interviews.
