Attention: Screenwriters Looking To Get Picked Up

Warner Bros has signed a deal with Franklin Leonard’s “The Black List” to discover under-served screenwriters. Starting from Thanksgiving season this year, five new screenwriters will be recommended by WGA to Warner Bros every six months; one of which will be offered a two-step blind script deal worth approximately $93,000. Leonard said that the program will target certain demographics of writers, including “writers of color and women, but also older writers as well, with pre and early baby boomers […].” On top of this, here’s another catch: the chosen writers cannot have made more than $25,000 from screenwriting in their career, as the idea is to offer chances for new screenwriters to express their voices and ideas. For all the aspiring screenwriters out there, look out! This might be your chance!
