We're gearing up for the Fall 2020 semester of our flagship Harvardwood Writers Program! So TV writers, dust off that sample and get it in shape to submit. The TV Modules will begin meeting in mid-September and run through December/January 2021, exact dates TBD.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will be meeting primarily via Zoom. We will have modules for writers based in Los Angeles (keeping in mind the possibility of future in-person events, networking, and community-building), but we will also accommodate remote writers.
The Jeff Sagansky Harvardwood TV Writers Program uses peer review, guest speakers and workshops to foster a motivating and supportive environment for each participant’s writing. In recent years, participants in the Harvardwood Writers Program and Competition have seen unprecedented success with pilot sales to ABC, the CW, Showtime, Sony, Spike, Syfy, and TV Land, in addition to blind script deals at ABC Studios and Warner Bros. Harvardwood writers have been staffed on Agent Carter (ABC), American Dad (Fox), Billions (Showtime), Community (NBC), Covert Affairs (USA), Family Guy (FOX), The Flash (CW), Girlfriends’ Guide (Bravo), Goliath (Amazon), The Good Wife (CBS), Gotham (Fox), Great News (NBC), Grey's Anatomy (ABC), How To Get Away With Murder (ABC), Jane the Virgin (CW), Justified (FX), The Newsroom (HBO), Perception (TNT), Power (Starz), Sleepy Hollow (Fox), State of Affairs (NBC), and The Tomorrow People (CW).
