Nickelodeon Animation Writing Program ft. Katherine Wells – Inside the TV Writing Programs (PT179)

Alex and Nick bring back their “Inside the TV Writing Program” series – a deep dive into what goes on inside every major TV writing program from the decision makers themselves.

Our sixth part takes a look at the revamped Nickelodeon Animation Writing Program, with Katherine Wells, who heads it as the Manager of Creative Talent Development and Outreach.

We discuss everything about it, from their brand new application and selection process, to how they adapt the program’s content to the industry, and what comes after.

Twelve Years of TV Calling

It’s been a rough year, but today is a day of celebration as we mark the 12th birthday of TV Calling!

Pretty incredible to see how far we’ve come. If every year of existence were its own month, we’d have a full year’s worth. (Wait, what?)

This site and community wouldn’t exist without you. Yes, you reading this right now. So on that note, let me say a huge THANK YOU for your continuous support. I repeat it every year, and it remains true.

For my stat fiends, once again the past twelve months (i.e. year) have been our best on record. In fact, TV Calling was reaching peaks of 700-1,000 daily visitors during May sweeps! And that’s not even mentioning all the Paper Team accolades, including the podcast reaching 265,000 downloads. Surreal.

I’ll acknowledge there have been a couple of misses recently – including no yearly “spec list” for the first time in (literally) a decade. Hopefully you can forgive these mishaps due to, well, the world imploding et al. Interestingly, this also happened on the year when specs are making a comeback for several showrunners and staffing prospects (more on that later).

But all is not lost as I know there’ll be plenty of content in weeks and months and years to come, both on TV Calling and Paper Team.

These days in particular, we hope you are not only safe and secure but on your way to thriving. Despite all the hardships going on, know you are never alone – I’m right here by your side.

Here’s to year thirteen, and many more beyond.

Write on.
