Universal’s 2019 Writers Program has Opened!

Just a few months ago, we announced the “participants” (read: “winners”) in Universal’s 2018 Writers Program, and whaddaya know? Last week they opened the 2019 version.

Here’s how Cartoon Brew’s Amid Amidi put it:

Universal Filmed Entertainment Group has opened the application period for its 2019 Writers Program, and they’ve made one big change this year: the program is now open to writers who are developing live-action and animation hybrid scripts, as long as the overall script maintains an emphasis on live-action content.

The “live-action and animation hybrid” bit is new to the program this year and “acknowledges the direction in which Hollywood is headed.” In the words of Universal’s Janine Jones-Clark:

We are seeing great momentum with our writer’s program and are thrilled to now be accepting live-action and animation hybrid scripts given our studio’s foothold and strength in family entertainment
