The 2013 WGAW TV Staffing Brief provides new information on the progress of women, minority, and older writers on the television employment front.
This report highlights three groups of writers who traditionally have been underemployed in the television industry — women, minority, and older writers. It documents the employment experiences of these groups of writers relative to their male, white, and younger counterparts in order to identify any trends that suggest either progress or retreat on the industry diversity front. The findings in the brief will be included later this year in the 2013 Hollywood Writers Report, the eighth report in a series that considers patterns in employment and earnings in both the television and film sectors. Using the reports below as diagnostic tools, the WGAW seeks to collaborate with the industry in efforts to increase the employment opportunities of all writers.
