Episodic Lab

The Sundance Institute Episodic Lab is a six-day program at the Sundance Mountain Resort in Utah that offers writers the opportunity to workshop a pilot script, while developing their writing and pitching skills. Working with accomplished showrunners, nonwriting creative producers, and executives, the Fellows participate in one-on-one story meetings, craft workshops, and simulated writers’ rooms, which together provide an elevated creative strategy for their material from key industry players in positions to advance their projects and careers.

Following participation in the labs, fellows receive customized, year-round support from Sundance Institute staff with a focus on project development, securing representation, and staffing. This includes ongoing creative and strategic advice from the Episodic Program team targeted introductions to agents, managers, writers, producers, and executives; inclusion in our alumni program,the Sundance Institute Collective opportunities to observe the writers’ rooms of shows currently in production; and ongoing mentorship with episodic writers, directors, and producers.
