Online script service The Black List has announced its latest partnership to offer opportunities to emerging writers in drama. They’ve recently teamed up with Fox, their first partnership with a broadcast television network, to offer potential blind deals with the network or staff positions on current and future Fox series.
More from the press release below:
“As we build a year-round slate of high-quality programming, we are constantly looking for fresh voices that break out of the pack,” said Terence Carter, Executive Vice President, Drama Development & Programming. “Given the Black List’s impressive track record in features, they are the perfect partner for us as we seek out new drama talent.”
Beginning today, writers with pilots hosted on the Black List website who have not made more than $500K for script or teleplay work in aggregate over the last ten years may opt into consideration via the site. The deadline for opting in is May 1, 2014 at 11:59 PM PT.
Shortly thereafter, the Black List will select a short list of five writers based on the data gathered about each script during its time hosted on the website. Each finalist will then provide a professional resume and one page personal statement, which will be reviewed along with their selected original work by Fox executives.
To be considered, simply opt in during the script upload process or on your My Scripts page.
