Warner Bros. TV Sets Directors Workshop, Expands Talent Development Efforts

Warner Bros. TV has launched a Directors Workshop Program as part of an expansion of its talent recruiting and development efforts.

The Directors Workshop will revolve around a 12-week master class program designed to open the doors to TV directing to promising helmers from other mediums, including film, musicvids and commercials. The program, to run May 31 to Aug. 23, will include production-centric seminars and the chance to shadow a director on a WBTV series. Classes will be led by author and helmer Bethany Rooney.

Warner Bros. TV has run a similar Writers Workshop program for more than 30 years. It also spearheads the Fresh Ink outreach initiative that aims to help diverse writers develop and shop scripts to broadcast and cable networks.

With the launch of the Directors Workshop, all of WBTV’s talent development programs will be housed under the newly formed Warner Bros. Television Workshop unit.

The studio is now considering candidates for the Directors Workshop. Applications and eligibility info can be found on its Television Workshop website.
