Are you obsessed with reality TV? Do you unwind by watching baking shows or binging the latest dating social experiment? Are true crime docs keeping you up at night? Try an internship in unscripted!
Back Roads Entertainment is an unscripted TV production company in Austin TX founded by Colby Gaines, who co-created one of cable's longest running hit shows, Pawn Stars. Since our inception, we've produced over 30 series, specials and pilots for MTV, Food Network, Amazon, BET, Discovery and more! We're currently working on a big dating social experiment with a major streamer.
We develop and produce unscripted TV shows across genres of food, home, comedy, game, competition and more. Our current projects have us working with high-profile superstars and pitching to every streamer, cable channel, and broadcast network there is.
Back Roads interns will be involved in every aspect of the TV development process. Interns will learn research and development techniques for unscripted projects, keep up to date on buzz-worthy news and industry trends, and learn how to develop and pitch their own original unscripted TV ideas.
Back Roads interns will be engaged in a bi-weekly master class program to learn all of the steps and stages of TV development from loglines to one-pagers, decks and sizzles. Every week, our interns are also pitching their own original ideas directly to the company's Founder and development team in our brainstorm and ideation sessions. Over the course of the semester, our interns learn how to take these early ideas and enhance them, developing the ideas into ready-to-pitch TV shows.
The internship will start at the beginning of the Spring semester in-person at the Austin office. No remote positions are available. Applicants must be based in or around Austin. The internship will start around January 17th and end in mid May. The weekly time commitment is minimum 16 hours a week.
RESPONSIBILITIES: We are looking for interns with a passion for television who are available a minimum of 16 hours a week. Applicants are REQUIRED to obtain school credit for this internship. Adobe Creative Suite and video editing is a plus, but by no means required.
