  • Nick Writing Fellowship

    Just wanted to send everyone an update. I saw on the Nick Writing Fellowship Facebook page that semifinalist calls are going out today and tomorrow (ack!). Good luck to all who entered! Hope some DDers' phones start ringing!

    Re: Nick Writing Fellowship

    Are you speaking of the Nicholl? I just pored over their FB page, and didn't see an announcement. In addition, they responded to a couple of "when will you announce the semifinalists," to which they replied "by email toward the end of August."

    I think Austin calls the semifinalists, and sends letters out for second round/rejections.

    Of course, I could be wrong about this.

      I could be wrong, but I think the OP is referring to the Nickelodeon Fellowship.

        Re: Nick Writing Fellowship

        cshel is correct. I was referring to the Nickelodeon Fellowship (called the Nick Writing Fellowship on their Facebook page, and the Nickelodeon Writing Program on their website). It's a paid TV writing fellowship. Fellow DDer Tiramisushi was a fellow a few years ago, before he went on to NBC Writer's on the Verge. For more information, the website is: http://www.nickwriting.com/home

        BTW...I just saw that the semi-finalists are posted.

        Did any DDers make the cut this year?

              Congrats, Gridlock'd. Was hoping to join you, but I guess they lost my "New Girl" spec in the mail.

              Zero "New Girl," "Parks and Rec," and "Modern Family" specs in the semi-finals. Three "Happy Endings." Pretty wild.

                  Thanks, guys!

                  I always envied the people I've seen get congratulations messages on this board over the years. It's so cool to finally be on the receiving end! Honestly, it didnt feel quite real until right now.

                  Now it's just the simple matter of charming a woman on the phone. That's what I do best... right? Right? *dabs sweat, loosens tie*

                    Oh, good, "Brutal." He used the word "Brutal."

                    PS: Thanks again for the reminder!

                        Yes, but only when I'm lying.

                        I just read the interview you did with Karen. Very enlightening. I see that you say they don't accept original sitcom scripts as a second spec. Is that still the case? I do have another existing show spec but it's ANOTHER "Always Sunny." Same show I won with. You think she'd accept that for the follow-up script? I worried that doesn't show much range.

                        My friend wants me to whip up a new spec in the next week but that seems kinda crazy. I can't write that fast. Not well, anyway.

                          If you get staffed on a show, that's about how long you have to write an episode. Might be worth a try, if only for practice.

                              Thanks, guys! I think the phone interview went well, but they say it all comes down to the second spec. I think my second spec is good, not great, but hopefully that's the case with everyone else in the running.

                              The interview was stressful but at least now that it's over, I can kick back, relax, and prepare for 11 more interviews. Assuming I advance.
