Warner Bros. – Black List partnership
July 24th, 2013 by Scott Myers

Important news from the Black List:

We are pleased to partner with Warner Bros. to further diversity within their screenwriting ranks by identifying up to four diverse screenwriters who have not yet earned $25K in aggregate for their screenwriting work to receive a two-step WGA-minimum blind deal (over $90,000).

Every six months beginning today, the Black List, using its script evaluation service, will select a short list of five writers from amongst those who have opted into consideration via the site. Those writers will be invited to submit a one-page personal statement, which will be reviewed along with their selected screenplay by the Warner Bros. development & production executive team.

One of those writers may be selected to receive a two-step blind screenwriting deal worth over $90K.

The first short list will be announced on November 3, 2013.

To be considered, simply opt in during the script upload process or on your My Scripts page.

Best,
The Black List

You may read the Deadline article on the announcement HERE:

[Franklin] Leonard said the program will target “primarily writers of color and women, but also older writers as well, with pre and early baby boomers falling into that category.”

Onward!
