808 Pilot News!


This year I submitted a draft of my pilot, "808" in an application to the
Native TV Lab and I was selected! My deep thanks go to the Native American Media Alliance and the Cherokee Film Office, who created and hosted the seminar. It was an incredible 8 weeks of working with fellow aspiring writers, an excellent instructor, and many amazing Industry panelists. During the Native TV Lab, each of us wrote a complete first draft of a brand new pilot screenplay and did a full revision. My new Pilot, tentatively named "Island Nightingale," will go through a number of rewrites. The intention is to submit to a number of screen writing diversity programs and contests. Fingers Crossed!
