1. 2016 Disney ABC Writing Program (Deadline: June 2nd)
Writers become employees of Disney│ABC Television Group (DATG) and will be paid a weekly salary of $961.54 ($50,000 annualized) plus any applicable benefits for which they are eligible in accordance with the then-current Company benefits. The one-year program begins in February and ends in February of the following year. Please note that time frames are subject
to change.

The primary goal for Program Writers is to staff on a DATG series as a staff writer during the one-year program; however, staffing is not guaranteed. The program also provides access to executives, producers and literary representatives through various meetings and events designed to facilitate relationships that can prove invaluable in developing a television writing career. For at least the first month the Program Writers participate in a curriculum designed to better prepare for staffing consideration. Past activities have included workshops led by veteran television writers, producers and Disney │ABC Writing Program alumni; improvisational workshops; and networking mixers with DATG current programming and development executives.

WRITERS – If you’re not aware of it by now, there are writing opportunities left and right. Here’s a list of three of them to keep you busy all weekend:

2. ABC Casting Original Scene Submissions (Deadline: June 5th)
ABC Casting is seeking original scene submissions for our upcoming Talent Showcase. This is a one night event produced by the ABC Casting Department to showcase new talent to an invited industry audience.

ABC has a long-standing commitment to promoting diversity in the entertainment industry through a variety of projects administered by the ABC Casting Department. The Talent Showcase offers an excellent opportunity for talent that might otherwise go unnoticed. Since 2012, 25 new writers and 23 original scenes have been selected including 2011 NY Showcase Alum Jermaine Fowler who wrote and performed his original scene, Black Genie. Jermaine recently wrote and starred in Delores and Jermaine, a 1⁄2 hour comedy pilot for ABC based on his life. In 2012, NY Showcase participant Andrew Law wrote and performed his original scene, Once We Go Black, and went on to join Late Night with Seth Meyers as a staff writer.

3. NHMC TV Writers Program (Deadline: August 3rd)
The NHMC Television Writers Program was created in 2003 and is an intensive scriptwriters workshop that prepares Latinos for writing jobs at major television networks. Modeled after the previously successful Hispanic Film Project, the program is a direct response to the lack of diverse writers in primetime network TV. To take NHMC TV Writers Program graduates to the next level, NHMC has also created the NHMC Pitching Lab and the Latino Scene Showcase.
