The incubator, whose core mission is to creatively and financially support writers from different backgrounds as they create their own series for cable or streaming services, is an eight-month paid program aimed at TV writers who have previously been staffed on series and want to create their own dramatic show.
The goal is to create a market-ready, straight-to-series project, which if they go forward will be produced by Rideback with financing and other support by Mrc, which is providing funding for the program. Rideback and Mrc will jointly bring projects to market, with an option of adding other elements. The writers will be set as executive producer/writers and mentors as non-writing executive producers.
