The Sony Pictures Television (SPT) Diverse Directors Program is committed to helping talented artists of diverse backgrounds build TV industry relationships for a possible career path as a DGA scripted TV episodic director.
Program participants may be selected to shadow directors on episodes of scripted SPT series. Those participants who secure a shadow assignment on an episode, which will include pre-production, production and post-production (3 or more weeks), will be paid a weekly stipend when actively shadowing on any aspect of the production.
The duration of any shadow assignment and the number of shadow assignments will be at the sole discretion of SPT.
This program is open to all individuals who can submit verification that they have the legal right to work in the United States on SPT productions for the duration of the program. Previous professional TV production experience is strongly preferred but not required.
All applicants must complete SPT’s online application for the program.
