Kids’ TV Writing Incubator

6-month program for emerging to mid-level Black and Indigenous writers to develop a plot script for Kids' TV
September 5, 2022

Applications are now open for Cycle 5 of our Kids’ TV Writing Incubator. This 6-month program will mentor and train 15 emerging to mid-level Black and Indigenous writers as they develop a pilot script for kids’ TV.

The program is designed to provide participants with an in-depth overview of the business and craft of writing for children’s TV. We cover story structure, standards and practices, buyers and genres, demographics, live-action vs. animation, pitching, how to take a meeting, general industry etiquette, and introduce participants to network executives and kids’ content producers from Canada and the US.

Led by award-winning writer, John May (The Magic School Bus, Sesame Street, 16 Hudson), participants get to experience real world writing deadlines to prepare them for working in the kids’ TV industry.

Application deadline is September 5 at 11:59 pm (ET).
