The N-Word

For my fieldwork residency, I’ve convened a writers’ room for my webseries, The N-Word. The goal of the project is to have nine episodes ready to shoot if and when the production team has the funding to complete the season. My talented team of writers (fellow Pratt MFA student Maria Baker, Pratt alums Luke Degnan and Abel Shifferaw, and DC-based writer Kemi Ajisekola) and I have created a general season arc, general plot and subplot summaries for ten episodes (the planned nine, plus one in case there’s additional funding), specific plotting work for seven episodes, and at least some writing work on three episodes. Although the for-school portion of the project is complete and the writers’ room has gone on hiatus, we intend to reconvene and continue our work beyond the boundaries of the fieldwork residency.
