Terry’s Picks: The Writers Lab, #OscarsSoWhite, Netflix Binge

The Writers Lab: Read scripts from The Writers Lab 2015 thanks to our friends at The Blacklist and get ready for 2016 – NYWIFT and IRIS will begin accepting submissions for this year’s Lab on February 1.

#OscarsSoWhite: With a complete lack of nonwhite performers in the acting categories and near shutout of nonwhite creators in the other major categories, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs released a statement saying “we need to do more, and better and more quickly.” Meanwhile, stars like Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee are calling for a boycott.

2016 Binge: Netflix announces returns of its hit women-centric and women-created series, including Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Orange is the New Black, Grace & Frankie, and Jessica Jones.
