Netflix, stage 32 team for the content creation workshop

A panel of industry experts will present workshops as part of Netflix’s Content Creation for the Global Marketplace program and Stage 32.

Designed as a series of educational virtual workshops, the program is aimed at emerging talents from around the world who will learn how to turn their ideas into compelling structured series.

Experts in attendance include Vijal Patel, an Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning writer and producer who has worked on shows such as “Black-ish” and “The Middle”; Mickey Fisher, showrunner, writer and producer for Tom Clancy’s “Jack Ryan”, “The Strain” and “Extant”; Anna M. Henry, director of development and producer whose entire work can be seen on Netflix, HBO, Starz and CBS; “Stuber” writer Tripper Clancy; and “13” producer Jeanette B. Milio.

During the five-part series, participants will learn how to format a TV pilot and create a series budget, in addition to sessions designed to break down the pilot and budget process for different scripted genres including drama, science- fiction and comedy. .

Virtual workshops are open to creators with a free Stage 32 subscription. The first session will be available through the Stage 32 website from December 15, with future sessions running monthly until May 2022. All sessions may be watched on demand on the Stage 32 platform until 2022.

“This program will give future creators access to industry experts who can share their knowledge and discuss best practices that are standardized as the volume of series and films made around the world continues to increase,” Chris Mack, Director, Creative Talent Investment and Development at Netflix, writes in a blog post.

Led by Richard Botto, Stage 32 is a global community of entertainment content creators and buyers with over 800,000 members.

Earlier this year, Netflix and Stage 32 teamed up for a TV pitch workshop attended by 100,000 budding creators in more than 160 countries.
