NBC's Writers on the Verge

NBC's Writers on the Verge Writers on the Verge is a 12-week program focused on polishing writers and readying them for a staff writer position on a television series.

We are looking for writers who are "almost there" but need that final bit of preparation with their writing and personal presentation skills. We particularly encourage writers of diverse backgrounds to apply. The program will consist of two night classes, which will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (7-10pm), weekly at NBC in Universal City, CA. Once accepted, students must attend all classes and turn in all written assignments. Classes concentrate on creating an exceptional spec & pilot script and understanding the dynamics of pitching oneself in the television industry. Writers are given the chance to interact with industry players ranging from network executives to showrunners to agents and receive valuable feedback on their work and pitch style. Writing assignments on a NBC television show may be available after successful completion of the program but are not a guarantee. Past participants have gone on to series including Grimm, Community, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, State of Affairs, Royal Pains, Arrested Development, White Collar, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Friday Night Lights.
