National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) has announced the return of its Series Script Writers Program, a virtual eight-week intense writers lab that has helped launch the careers of more than 200 Latinx writers.
This year’s class was recently welcomed in by writer, actress, and Series Scriptwriter alum Aimee Garcia, who kicked off the program.
Each year, ten diverse Latinx writers nationwide are selected for an eight-week intense writers lab where they work closely with mentors and meet other writers in the industry to help build a community of Latinx writers. Writers also develop a half-hour or hour long original series pilot by the end of the program, and they are given the opportunity to pitch to NHMC’s partners and network executives, and connect with agents and managers.
“We’re proud that our program can continue to give aspiring writers a platform to hone in on their craft and share their creativity with the industry.” said Brenda Victoria Castillo, President and CEO, National Hispanic Media Coalition. “This group of writers represent a new generation of Latine storytellers who will continue to push the industry forward. We can’t wait to see what they come up with by the end of the program.”
Alumni of the program have gone on to work on shows that can be viewed on Netflix, The CW, NBCUniversal, Max, Hulu, ViacomCBS, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and more. The program shifted to a virtual format in 2021 in an effort to reach more Latinx talent and make the program available to everyone nationwide.

- Diego Lanao
- Hayley Muñoz
- Jeanette Dilone
- K. Broch

With WGA and AMPTP reaching an agreement, NHMC is excited to begin its 2023 season program by supporting the next generation of Latinx writers in Hollywood and beyond.
