Episodic Lab, in partnership with @netflix, has joined the Realness Institute programmes.
Episodic Lab will focus on developing pitch documents with selected writers for series content of all genres.
6 writers will spend 3 months in an online ‘writers room’ format. They will work with a script consultant and a creative producer to fully develop their story concepts into an episodic pitch. Along with creative training, writers will receive feedback from NETFLIX’s series development team.
Selected writers will receive a stipend of $2000 per month to dedicate 3 months to cover their living expenses as they develop their ideas.
At the end of the lab, selected writers will have the opportunity to pitch to NETFLIX and have their series developed for production.
Should the pitch not be picked up for production, the development rights of the story revert to the writer.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR AUTHENTIC AND ORIGINAL AFRICAN STORIES, NO MATTER THE GENRE, TO BRING FROM THE PAGE TO THE WORLD.
