CBS Writers Mentoring Program ft. Jeanne Mau – Inside the TV Writing Programs (PT131)

Alex and Nick continue 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 second part focuses on the CBS Writers Mentoring Program, with its supervisor Jeanne Mau, Senior Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion at CBS.

We go over everything, from the importance of the letter of interest and scripts, to the interview process and how the program helps its writers navigate a room.
