Interested writers should know the mechanics of a primetime soap opera... from bible to episode outlines, from long-range story/character arcs to finished scripts. Diaz Brothers: www.imdb.com/company/co0476253; http://thediazbrothers.net. The chosen writer(s) on this one will be in charge of not only the pilot, but also the full season bible and other materials needed to sell the show. Note: the titles of both projects have been deliberately withheld, as the titles are indicative of both projects and would reveal too much in an open listing such as this. We want fresh new writers willing to roll up their sleeves and immerse themselves in both projects. We will accept writing samples in PDF format only (ONE submission per writer or writing team, so choose what you send us very carefully). Samples should only be in the vein of either project described, and subject lines should indicate which you’re submitting for. Samples that fall into other genres or formats will be rejected and not read. Samples should include: 1) a cover letter, 2) a resume of produced (or sold/optioned) projects and 3) a brief (less than 1 page) description of the writing sample itself.
