About

The Storytellers Initiative aims to discover and celebrate bold new series with a strong point of view and bold characters from the next generation of storytellers. The Storytellers Initiative cultivates lasting relationships between emerging creatives and industry executives, focused specifically on supporting diverse voices, championing marketable, unique storytelling, and pushing independent projects into production. Writers are invited to submit their pilot script for a chance to participate in a writers workshop, a live read of their script with professional actors, and a year-long development deal.

Benefits


WORKSHOP

Three Finalists will take part in a two-day creative workshop with industry experts, which includes sessions on 'how to pitch' and mini writers rooms for all 3 scripts. The goal of this workshop is to further get to know the creators and their skill levels as well as determine the Season Seven Winner! This workshop will take place either in Los Angeles or virtually depending on the state of Covid-19 and safety precautions.


The winning artists will receive an exclusive development deal with the presenting partner. The winner will also be flown out to Denver, CO for SeriesFest: Season Seven, and participate in a Storytellers Initiative Live Read Presentation of their script with professional actors.
