Congratulations to our 2018 Native American TV Writers Lab fellows for completing the program!
Seven Native writers developed incredible new television pilots. The writers pitched three original ideas, selected one to develop and crafted their idea into a second draft within the 5 week intensive. Actors read the scripts during the final week. Thanks to instructor Gabe Garza for your great inspiration!
The 2018 Native American TV Writers Lab fellows met with numerous executives, writers and talent agents. Meetings were held with NBCUniversal, CBS Entertainment Diversity, United Talent Agency (UTA), Sundance Institute, Paradigm, AwesomenessTV and Powderkeg. We also met with Native American writers and producers in the entertainment industry.
The program will continue throughout the summer with additional meetings and script submissions to various industry outlets and corporate partners. In November, the writers lab culminates in a pitch workshop where lab participants will pitch several of our corporate supporters. They will have an opportunity to pitch their current projects, their scripts and themselves.
Thanks to our corporate sponsors and Mike Royce (One Day at a Time):
