The 2013 NHMC TV Writers Program Kicks Off!

This week marked the 11th year of the NHMC Television Writers Program.

 The NHMC TV Writers Program is an intensive scriptwriters workshop that prepares Latinos for writing jobs at the major television networks, and is a direct response to the lack of diverse writers in primetime network TV. In fact, an NHMC-commissioned national poll showed that non-Latinos primarily learn about our community from what they see on television. For this reason,  NHMC works to get more Latinos in back of camera to achieve balanced and accurate portrayals of diversity in the U.S.

Since its inception eleven years ago:

  • 110 writers have completed the NHMC TV Writers Program
  • 28 writing careers have been launched
  • 25% of NHMC Writers have been staffed on shows at the following networks: ABC/DisneyNBCCBS,FOXNickelodeonCWBETLATVVH1 and NuvoTV
