Huge congratulations to CineStory 2012 alum Christina Walker for being named one of the eight scribes for the 2016 Disney-ABC Writing Program.
The primary goal for the Program Writers is to staff on a DATG series as a staff writer during the one-year program; however, staffing is not guaranteed. The program also provides access to executives, producers and literary representatives through various meetings and events designed to facilitate relationships that can prove invaluable in developing a television writing career. For at least the first month the Program Writers participate in a curriculum designed to better prepare them for staffing consideration.
In the past, the program has launched the careers of writers, like Maria Jacquemetton (Mad Men), Jane Espenson (Once Upon A Time), Saladin K. Patterson (Psych), Bryan Oh (Chicago Fire), George Mastras (Breaking Bad), and Veena Sud (The Killing).
