Fox Launches Diverse Writers Program

Deadline says:

Fox’s Audience Strategy division, the successor of the network’s diversity department, is launching a new writers program, the Fox Writer’s Intensive. Unlike existing diversity writers programs at TV networks and studios designed to help young minority writers get an entry into the industry, Fox’s initiative targets more experienced writers and is not limited to minorities but open to any scribes with diverse backgrounds — LGBT, foreign-born, etc. (For newcomers, there will be a separate, entry-level Fox writers program in the fall of 2012).
