Nickelodeon Writing Program

Our global Writing Program is one of the best in the biz. Consider the facts: alum have gone on to create their own Nickelodeon shows and write for all sorts of TV series and films. While in the Program, writers meet our series creators, work in writers’ rooms, and receive hands-on experience writing spec scripts and pitching story ideas in both live-action and animated television. Basically, they write a lot and do cool things, all while being provided a salary!

There are two creative avenues to pursue:

The General Track (up to 1 year) - While in the Program, writers hone their skills, build a professional network and gain real-world experience in writers’ rooms for our critically acclaimed live-action and animated shows. 

The Preschool Track (6-months) - The Preschool Track was created to develop writers specifically interested in writing and/or creating shows for the preschool demographic. You bring the smart, funny, engaging stories and characters, and we’ll help you bring the preschool.

Your submission must include a spec script based on a show from the Accepted Shows List (see website) and an original comedy pilot. You must be 18 years or older to participate. If you have previously applied to the Program and were not selected, you are welcome and encouraged to apply again. However, you must submit a different spec script for each new submission period.
