Black Theatre Coalition (BTC) has announced a new partnership with AMC Networks, as well as a Production and Casting Fellowship.
“There is so much opportunity and intersectionality between television, theatre, and film,” said Naila McKenzie, the vice president of diversity, equity, and inclusion at AMC Networks. “We are thrilled to be Black Theatre Coalition’s first partner in TV and film, and for the opportunity to work together to equip the next generation of Black storytellers with transferable skills and invaluable relationships in casting and production.”
A fellowship, designed to support Black creatives interested in film and television, will allow fellows to assist in the development, organizational, creative, and technical process in relation to original development and film programming initiatives. The fellowship, which is open to professionals based in New York and Atlanta, will begin July 25.
Additionally, BTC has selected a Casting Fellow to work with Marc Hirschifield at AMC Networks on projects for AMC Studios, the company’s in-house studio, production and distribution operation.
Submissions are open for the Production Fellowship. To apply click here.
