Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG) is helping make directing dreams come true yet again! Yup, that’s right: WBTVG has officially opened the submission process for their 2019 Directors’ Workshop.
Established back in 2013, the WBTVG Directors’ Workshop was created to discover new, diverse talent and to provide opportunities for women and minority directors.
The eight-week workshop has helped over 40 women and/or people of color launch their directing careers. And the opportunities don’t end with the workshop. Every single member of past graduating classes has been booked to direct for a Warner Bros. TV series. Good stats, eh?
Previous members include Regina King (Insecure, Shameless, This Is Us, The Good Doctor, Animal Kingdom, Being Mary Jane, Southland), Jaffar Mahmood (Young Sheldon, The Middle, Life in Pieces, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Alexis Ostrander (Light as a Feather, Riverdale, American Horror Story, Supergirl, Second City), David Rodriguez (Chicago P.D., Animal Kingdom, Chicago Med, The Chi, Queen of the South), Sherwin Shilati (Lucifer, Riverdale, NCIS: Los Angeles, Trinkets) and Jude Weng (Fresh Off the Boat, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Life in Pieces, The Good Place, Young Sheldon), to name a few.
Have we convinced you to apply yet?
Applications for the 2019 Directors’ Workshop are due February 7, 2019 and must include a resume, short composition, letters of recommendation and link to a directing portfolio.
