Rivera Crushes Fox Writers Intensive

And the hits just keep on coming! Our pal and client Jorge Rivera was just named as a participant in the Fox Writers Intensive Program for 2016. The program aims to provide a pathway into the biz for minority writers, and is a year-long training program where the participants work with industry mentors and are groomed for staff writing jobs in TV. at the end of the year, one of the ten participants receives a Fellowship and will receive a development deal with a Fox-affiliated company. Every participant receives an invaluable hands-on education and guidance into a writing career, and many Fox Intensive alumni have gone on to become staff writers and show creators. As well, participants are sent to public schools where they work with young writers to develop and stage their material. we couldn't be prouder of Jorge, who has put in serious sweat equity to earn his slot. Way to go, dude!
