The Fox Writers Intensive (FWI)
is an initiative designed to nurture experienced writers with diverse voices, backgrounds and life experiences and creates a solid pipeline of well-rounded talent for potential staffing on Fox television shows, films and other Fox entertainment platforms. The initiative offers experienced writers a rigorous, four-month curriculum focused on 1) developing original material; 2) learning and honing writing skills for multiple mediums; and 3) exploring the business of media and entertainment. Upon successful completion, FWI finalists receive priority-staffing meetings for the dedicated Fox Staff Writer position on Fox Television Group Productions. Annually, one FWI Fellow is awarded either a purchase and development deal on his/her original script or a “first-look” deal from Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) or one of the Fox affiliated production entities.
