About the NBC TV Writers Program 

The NBC TV Writers Program is our premier program for emerging diverse episodic television writers with the goal of creating the next generation of showrunners and content creators. 

The eight-month program develops diverse writers whose distinct points of view and lived experiences provide unique perspectives to the writers’ room. 

Writers attend weekly evening workshops to enhance their creative and professional skills, including branding, pitching, and interviewing, as well as expand on their knowledge of the ever-changing television landscape.

Additionally, they have opportunities to learn from and build relationships with industry professionals, including network and studio executives, showrunners, agents, and managers. 

At the conclusion of the program, participants will have developed an original pilot to which they retain all rights, and will be considered for available staff writer positions on NBCU Television and Streaming as well as Universal Studio Group series.
