About

The Storytellers Initiative is searching for remarkable writers to give voice to the Native American experience in the next best TV pilot competition!

The Storytellers Initiative TV pilot competition seeks unproduced 30-minute sitcoms that have at least one Native American character and/or writer, represent an authentic Native American voice, and are accurate in Native American portrayals; scripts must be void of stereotypes traditionally associated with Native American peoples. 

Three Finalists will participate 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 winner!

The winning artists will have the opportunity for an exclusive development deal and commitment from Green Pastures Studios to finance and produce the pilot episode in Oklahoma.
