INFO: The Sundance Institute Episodic Lab is a six-day program at the Sundance Resort in Utah that offers writers the opportunity to workshop an original pilot script, while developing their writing and pitching skills. Working with accomplished showrunners, non-writing creative producers and executives, the Fellows participate in one-on-one story meetings, pitching sessions, and simulated writers rooms, which together provide creative and strategic keys to success.
There are two rounds in the application process: in the Round 1, applicants are required to submit the first 5 pages of an original pilot script, their bio, series logline, series overview, personal statement, thematic statement, and (optional) links to samples of previous work, along with a $40 nonrefundable processing fee. If selected for the Round 2, applicants are notified by email and have 2 weeks to submit their full pilot script and series treatment.
