Black List x YouTube Originals Black Voices Creator Fellowship

logo
The inaugural Black List x YouTube Originals Black Voices Creator Fellowship will provide four writers who can write exceptionally and authentically about the Black experience with $40,000 each to produce a proof of concept and develop a pitch for a television series that authentically reflects the Black experience. Each Fellow will also receive mentorship from an established showrunner over the course of the six-month Fellowship.

Writers who have not had any previously compensated script-writing work produced in their film or television writing careers can opt into consideration via the Black List website until December 15, 2022. At that time, the Black List will choose up to fifteen shortlisted writers, whose work and initial series pitches will be shared with YouTube Originals, who will decide the fellowship recipients in February 2023.

Black List x YouTube Originals Black Voices Creator Fellowship is open to feature, episodic, and theatrical writers; however, please note recipients for this Fellowship will have to produce a proof of concept short and develop a pitch for a television series. Additionally, $20,000 of the $40,000 grant must be allocated as production funds for the proof of concept short.
