In July 2019, as Deadline reported, The Black List partnered with NALIP, The Latin Tracking Board, Mijente, The Nathan Cummings Foundation, Remezcla and UnidosUS to create the very first Latinx List for feature screenplays.
This February, The Black List has partnered up with NALIP, The Latin Tracking Board, The Untitled Latinx Project, and Remezcla to create a call for submissions for the inaugural Latinx TV List, which will focus on one-hour and half-hour original pilots written by at least one Latinx writer and featuring a Latinx or Latin American character in a prominent role.
Filmmakers and content creators are invited to submit a script for consideration by uploading it to The Black List website during the month of February 2020.
Submissions will be accepted until April 29, 2020. Only one-hour and half-hour original pilot submissions will be considered for this opportunity (no webseries, please.)
Writers selected for the Latinx TV List will be notified of their placement in Spring 2020, with a public announcement to follow.
Please submit your scripts to https://blcklst.com/education/opportunities/81
