Objective

The NHMC Television Writers Program focuses on the writing of an original TV pilot or a spec episode of a series currently on TV, conducted in an environment that simulates a TV Writers Room. The five-week, total immersion workshop is guided by former NBC V.P. of Script Development, Geoff Harris and is conducted in Studio City, California. A total of 10 writers are accepted nationwide from an established network of non-profit agencies, schools, universities, guilds and media organizations. The goal is for writers to develop the skills necessary to obtain employment in the industry.

Since its inception, the program has graduated more than 100 writers — 25% of whom have been staffed on shows in networks such as ABC/Disney, NBC, CBS, FOX, Nickelodeon, CW, BET, LATV, VH1 and NUVOtv.

The program normally takes place in the Fall of each year, wrapping up before Thanksgiving. A stipend of $250 per week will be given to each participant. Southwest Airline vouchers, housing, and meals will be provided to accepted participants who hail from out of state. The program is a full time commitment Monday-Friday.

The NHMC Television Writers Program is for seasoned writers who are capable of writing at least a one half-hour comedy or a one-hour dramatic television script in English within a five-week period of time. Each selected participant is expected to complete at least one script by the end of the five-week session, which will then be read by network executives. Those writers whose scripts show promise will be interviewed and mentored by the network executives with the objective of placing them on a show.

Applicants need not be of Latino/Hispanic descent to apply.
