Major ISA Verified Pro Looking For Writer With Immigration Background

Paid Gig
A major ISA-approved production company is seeking a writer with knowledge of the immigrant experience. This is a major opportunity for writers with stories that have been typically underrepresented in the industry. And this is a company with lots of weight and money. They have a project in development that they need a writer for, so we are on the hunt for scripts with a singular voice telling stories of American immigrants or refugees.

We’re looking for scripts that can walk a tonal tightrope – humane and comedic, edgy and inspiring, heart warming or heartbreaking, or both at the same time. We’re also looking for characters that pop, human beings who have to make do with the complex reality they found when they got here.

Comp titles: Little America, Ramy, Master of None, Transparent (Seasons 2 and 3), Jane the Virgin.

When submitting, please include your SCRIPT, a SYNOPSIS and a well developed LOGLINE. We will narrow our selection from the synopsis and logline, so you’ll want to put your best foot forward.

Union and non-union writers accepted. Scripts from anywhere in the world will be considered but must be in English language.

NOTE: An “ISA-verified pro” means it is a respected industry professional/company with means to fund projects that suit their mandate. They wish to remain private and have entrusted the ISA to vet and find content to send to them.
