Sundance Institute has now announced the 10 projects selected from more than 2,500 submissions for its second Episodic Story Lab. The Lab supports first-time show creators and is one of 24 residency Labs the Institute hosts each year for independent artists in theatre, film, new media and episodic content. Fellows will work with an accomplished group of showrunners, television executives and producers on developing their spec pilot and series overview. Following the Lab, Fellows will receive customized, year-round support from Feature Film Program staff, Creative Advisors and Industry Mentors.
“By offering both creative and industry guidance, our Episodic Story Lab prepares exciting, diverse voices to navigate the evolving landscape for episodic stories in order to advance both their projects and their careers,” said Keri Putnam, Executive Director of Sundance Institute.
“The Fellows selected for this year’s Episodic Story Lab bring a wide range of creative experiences from disciplines including filmmaking, music, literature, comedy and new media” said Michelle Satter, Founding Director of the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program. “We are excited by the diversity of perspectives represented by this new group, whose projects are ambitious, timely and original in voice and vision.”
