Here’s a heads up for you, the Warner Bros Writer’s Workshop will be open for submissions from May 1, 2014 – June, 1, 2014. You have more than enough time to revise, revise, revise and make your writing sample sing. The workshop consists of three components: lectures, a simulated writer’s room and most importantly, stafffing on a WB show. They can’t guarantee you will get hired but they will put your work in front of the folks who make the decisions. Only 10 lucky writers will be chosen and they usually get 2,000 submissions so make sure your writing sample is tight. You can only submit a sample from a list of shows from a drop down menu of comedies and dramas. Go here to apply, you can either submit online or via snail mail. There is a fee to submit, not sure what it is yet.
If you’re not sure about the formatting for television, here’s a great reference site to check out TONS of tv scripts for comedies and dramas – Google TV Script Collection.
