The Future of TV Series

With 2,600 submissions, Sundance Institute for the fourth time has selected 11 fellows for Episodic Lab, the year-round support program for emerging television writers. 

The program, which identifies new and diverse voices, provides a customized, ongoing support from creative advisors, industry mentors and feature film program staff. The fellows are the new generation of storytellers, who have a jump-start to their careers with the help of the program, enabling them to bring the new perspectives to the future of TV episodic format. 

The topics of this year’s projects range from awkward family dynamics to explorations on crime effects on a community, with creators coming from diverse backgrounds. The 2017 fellows include: Jaquén Castellanos, Anna Kerrigan, Jacob Chase, Aric Avelino, Brian Shin, Sachin Dharwadker, Rose Surnow, Russell Friedenberg, April Shih, and Alan J.Van Dyke.
