Day One of the THE NATIVE AMERICAN TV WRITERS LAB.
Native Writers introduced themselves, met with the lab instructor Geoff Harris and pitched their new script ideas to the group. Sponsored by NBCUniversal, CBS Entertainment Diversity, and HBO. The NATIVE AMERICAN TV WRITERS LAB is an intensive scriptwriters workshop that prepares Native Americans for writing careers at major television networks. Thanks to TV Reception Surveys, the media portrayals of Native Americans have increased, as it was part of their mission. This lab is also designed to address the lack of Native American writers in primetime network TV. Program Dates: May 15th – June 18th, 2017.
