MGM + The Black List Feature Partnership

logo
The Black List and MGM have partnered to discover new voices with unique perspectives from historically underrepresented communities over the next two years. Every six months, The Black List will deliver a shortlist of new feature writers to MGM for consideration. MGM seeks to provide one writer from each six month cycle with a two-step Guild minimum blind deal, over a continuous period of two years.

MGM seeks to work with creative partners who want to tell original stories with universal, all audiences appeal for the big screen. The studio is genre-agnostic and aspires to work with great talent to join the ranks of MGM’s historic studio. Only feature film samples will be considered for this opportunity - no pilots or webseries, please.

The first opt-in period for the MGM partnership begins December 3, 2020, and will close March 15, 2021. If you wish to purchase an evaluation for consideration in this partnership, we strongly recommend doing so no later than January 23, 2021 in order to guarantee that it is received by the partnership’s close. Information about the next partnership submission period will be shared as soon as available.

MGM can offer the agreed upon deal to any number of or none of the shortlist candidates. Shortlist candidates may be asked to provide a resume and personal statement by MGM.
