Episodic Comedy Colony


Our annual Episodic Comedy Colony, in partnership with the Nantucket Film Festival, takes place in June. This program provides four emerging writers with original episodic comedy shows an immersive, all-expense paid residency and mentorship experience. As with our October Colony for feature film writers, applications for the Episodic Comedy Colony are accepted by industry nomination only. We open submissions in late January.

On Nantucket the four writers work with eminent professional industry mentors to experience the Writers' Room, hone their craft, develop pilots, and practice pitching. The Episodic Comedy Colony culminates with a staged reading of excerpts from all four pilots at the Nantucket Film Festival. An invaluable collaboration with White Heron Theatre Company, this event is a public celebration of writing and storytelling.
