Nick sets up program for new writers

5 fellowships to be awarded

In an effort to attract writers from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds, Nickelodeon Prods. has created a one-year fellowship program with positions in Los Angeles and New York.

Five fellowships will be awarded in the Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. live action, animated TV and feature film divisions.

Fellows will gain hands-on experience in script structure, characterization, writing outlines and pitching story ideas while they receive a salary and a stipend to cover medical expenses.

Nickelodeon will provide round-trip airfare and one month’s accommodations if chosen fellows are not from L.A. or New York.

Albie Hecht, prexy, film and TV entertainment, stated, “We want to cast a wide net and reach out to creative people who are underrepresented in this industry.”

Program is set to begin June 2000 under the direction of Adrienne Lopez, veepee, talent development, film and TV.

To request an application, write to Fellowship Program Manager, Nickelodeon Prods., 1515 Broadway, NY, NY 10036. Application requests must be received before Sept. 30, and submissions should be mailed between Oct. 1 and Oct. 30.
