Humber Comedy Writing and Performance graduates frequently find success on stage and screen, but they also make names for themselves behind the scenes as writers, agents, and producers.
Brandon Mohammed - a 2012 graduate of the program and a prior Tim Sims Encouragement Award nominee - is especially ready for this kind of creative success. He has just been accepted into the final year of the Bell Media Diverse Screenwriters Program.
A prestigious television industry mentorship opportunity, the Diverse Screenwriters Program runs in partnership between Bell Media and the Writers Guild of Canada. It lets emerging and mid-career writers of all backgrounds build on their skills with guidance from industry professionals including showrunners and executives.
After a one-week boot camp in January, Brandon and his fellow screenwriters will work with Writers Guild story editors during a 12-week mentorship program. At the end, one lucky participant will be offered a writing internship on a Bell Media television series. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that it’ll be Brandon!
Congratulations, Brandon! We are excited to follow your career!
