EXCLUSIVE: Humanitas’ New Voices initiative, a program designed to help up-and-coming television writers break into the business, has had plenty of success since launching in November 2010, with five projects ordered to script at various studios. Now the organization has hired TV executive and producer Lowell Mate for the newly created role of Consulting Producer to help oversee the program. In addition, he will be executive producer of the New Voices project Why My Wife Thinks I Am an Idiot, based on the best-selling book by Mike Greenberg and recently ordered by ABC Studios. Mate and Humanitas executive director Cathleen Young will guide the program’s participants through critical steps with an eye towards partnering them with successful writers that are either Humanitas trustees or board members. Mate has been in development at Warner Bros and HBO and most recently was exec producer of Second City Entertainment.
