The first Native American Writers Room was a great success! The initiative supported the development of an experimental Native American writers room, gave voice to Native American writers and created a new indigenous comedy series. This project also created an opportunity for alumni of NAMA’s Native American TV Writers Lab to be hired as professional showrunners and writers; develop an episodic series concept, storyworld, and character universe; write episodes of content in the series; and experience a creative process anchored by an all-Native writers room.
“We have seen native writers grow into a genuine force with a voice that is finally being heard. They have been pushing creative limits and, with the native writer room project, they will have the opportunity they deserve to define what Native America means today.” – Ian Skorodin, President and CEO
The Native American Writers Room concluded with a staged reading at Netflix in Hollywood. Native American actors performed episodes from the new comedy series written by eight Native American writers. It was a great showcase of Native talent for studios, networks, talent representation and the community.
