The Warner Bros. Television Writers’ Workshop has been the premier writing program for new writers looking to start and further their career in the world of television. Every year, the Workshop selects up to 10 participants out of almost 2,000 submissions and exposes them to Warner Bros. Television’s top writers and executives, all with the ultimate goal of earning them a staff position on a Warner Bros. produced television show.
The Warner Bros. Television Writers’ Workshop consists of three components, all geared towards preparing the writer for a successful career in television writing:
(1) Lectures – Weekly lectures feature guest speakers currently working in television and include a mix of showrunners, directors, actors and agents. Each seminar will teach a new skill essential for surviving and excelling in a writers’ room as a staff writer and beyond.
(2) Simulated Writers’ Room – Workshop participants are divided into smaller groups for an intensive writing experience. Each participant is required to complete a new spec script under the same deadlines found on a show currently in production. How participants perform during will determine whether they will be chosen for a possible staffing position on a Warner Bros. show.
(3) Staffing – Upon completion of the program, studio executives will help participants, who pass the Writers’ Room, obtain a staff position on a Warner Bros. television show currently in production.
