Working for Canadian Screenwriters
The Writers Guild of Canada (WGC) is a professional association of more than 2,500 English-language screenwriters. WGC members are the creative force behind Canada’s successful TV shows, movies, and webseries, and their work brings the diversity of Canadian life and culture to the world’s screens.
The WGC supports Canadian screenwriters through negotiating and administering collective agreements with independent producers and broadcasters to ensure that screenwriters earn fair pay and benefits, and advocates for policies that foster Canadian programming and production. The WGC is also an essential professional hub for screenwriters, bringing them together as a community, and boosting their profile in the industry and beyond.
In this episode, we CUT TO: three of our 2021 WGC Screenwriting Awards Best Comedy Series nominees, interviewed by 2020's category winner, Jennica Harper (JANN). Listen in as finalists Kayla Lorette (New Eden), Evan Rosen (New Eden) and Winter Tekenos-Levy (Schitt's Creek) discuss their nominated scripts, the fun (or not) of writing during Covid and the evolution of TV comedy in Canada.
