WIGS is excited to partner with the Black List to identify a new screenwriter for a digital series script deal. The primary focus of this program is to expand opportunities for undiscovered talent and potentially to find a great new writer to create our next hit digital series.
Launched in May 2012 by director/producers Jon Avnet ("Black Swan," "Fried Green Tomatoes," "Risky Business"), Rodrigo Garcia ("Albert Nobbs," "In Treatment," "Big Love") and Jake Avnet, WIGS is breaking new ground with award-winning scripted dramas for the digital age. The studio offers high-end original series, short films and documentaries, all starring female leads. Popular series include BLUE, about a single mother trying to protect her son from the consequences of her secret career as an escort, starring Julia Stiles, Mark Consuelos, Kathleen Quinlan, and Uriah Shelton; LAUREN, which explores the consequences of dealing with sexual assault in the military, starring Troian Bellisario and Jennifer Beals; and SUSANNA, about a career-minded woman who must adapt to motherhood overnight, starring Maggie Grace and Anna Paquin.
In February 2013, Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) entered into a multi-year pact with WIGS. The programming, marketing and distribution partnership is designed to expand the breadth of offerings through the WIGS channel, and test and nurture dramatic concepts and talent in the digital realm.
