"If you are a diverse TV writer, that hasn’t already written on TV show and has a writing sample ready to send out, reply to this thread." - Matthew A. Cherry (EP on BlacKkKlansman)

I don’t think he’s reading samples unless I’m mistaken?

There was a NYT article that came out today about how there are not enough diverse writers (mostly in the middle and the top) to choose from but it’s because lower level diverse writers aren’t getting set and producing experience for various reasons so it’s hard to find them with experience to produce a show.

I assumed this was some sort of experiment to see how many were out there — but if it’s related to what I think it is, it’s not quite the same. Most of the diverse writers are stuck and bunched at the lower levels so it’s still competitive to get in at the ground level.
