Full Time Job
West Hollywood-based production company seeks 4 non-union screenwriters to develop the first season of a sitcom. The series is fully financed and producers are currently pitching the show to talent. All four writers will work together at our office in a typical writer's room set-up. Term of employment is 12-weeks or more, contingent on performance. The show has an edgier comedic tone and is being developed for premium cable channel or streaming platform distribution, think ''Shameless,'' ''Insecure,'' and ''Catastrophe.'' Our story has themes about race and class so we're looking for a diverse writing team, including at least one African American writer.
