FastCompany Magazine

The official Tumblr of Fast Company.

Two Hollywood startups announced a partnership today designed to bring new voices to entertainment. The Black List, a community of unrepresented screenwriters, is partnering with WIGS, the Fox-affiliated YouTube TV network, which has committed to producing a drama pilot by a yet-to-be-chosen Black List writer.
For as long as Hollywood has been Hollywood, it’s been dominated by a clubby atmosphere that sometimes seems designed to frustrate the dreams of new writers. The Black List, founded by Franklin Leonard (one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business 1000), began as a list of high-quality unproduced feature film scripts. Since 2012, though, Leonard has grown the brand into a website for the hosting and evaluation of unproduced screenplays and teleplays, with some users of the site going on to receive professional representation and optioning of their work.
