The Fox Group is bringing back the Fox Writers Intensive, the program for experienced writers with diverse backgrounds, ethnic minorities as well as LGBT, foreign-born and others, which debuted last year. The Fox network was the program’s main backer in its inaugural edition. This time around, the initiative is being expanded to other News Corp. divisions and will provide participants with opportunities in book development and publishing at HarperCollins, as well as the chance to apply on a first-look basis for the Fox Writers Studio, a yearlong think tank of salaried screenwriters working together to produce original feature films for 20th Century Fox Film. This year’s initiative will also feature development support from 20th Century Fox TV and FX, which, along with Fox Broadcasting Co., will purchase and develop the winning finalist’s original script.
