How it Works
- One is a CBS network or studio executive with whom they will meet on a regular basis, to discuss their work, get creative feedback on their material and get advice and support in furthering their career.
- The other is a show mentor who is a senior-level writer on a current CBS drama or comedy series. This relationship builds over the course of the Program and is focused on helping the participant with career goals.
It's been found that in order to derive the greatest benefit from the Program, participants should be available to 1) attend a once a week (evening) workshop and 2) attend meetings or observe in various situations for a minimum of five full days (not necessarily in sequence) over the course of the six-month Program.
- Letter of Interest
- Work Resume or Bio
- Two (2) Writing Samples: one (1) half-hour or one-hour episodic spec script based on a current prime time television series which aired new episodes during the 2014/2015 season on any network or cable channel and one (1) original work of writing - (original pilot, stage play or short fiction story). Original material should match in tone the spec script.
- A signed and notarized Submission Release form for the writing samples.
