More than three decades after the WBTV Writers’ Workshop was founded, directors are getting in the game. Warner Bros Television today announced the launch of its Directors’ Workshop, which aims to give emerging helmers from other mediums such as film, music, commercials and video a chance to break into primetime TV. It will be part of the new Warner Bros Television Workshop that includes the studio’s Writers’ Workshop and Fresh Ink initiative, which seeks diverse voices to develop comedy and drama ideas from women and ethnic minority writers. Submissions are being accepted for the inaugural Directors’ Workshop class, whose three-month course will run May 31-August 23 with weekly meetings on WB’s Burbank lot. Sessions will be held on active series sets and be taught by working pros. Each session will teach a new skill essential for working through pre-production, shooting and post-production. Additional optional components include cinematography workshops, acting classes and the opportunity to shadow directors on an episode of a Warner Bros show.
