Writer's Submission Packet
Bleacher Report is looking to hire temp writers for season six of the Emmy-nominated series, Game of Zones. Game of Zones is an animated comedy web series that maps real NBA drama to a medieval fantasy world and parodies HBO's hit series Game of Thrones. Real-life NBA players and dramatic league storylines are reimagined in a medieval fantasy world known as Balleros. Each season, over eight episodes, the series takes viewers through the timeline of the NBA year, from preseason to playoffs. Game of Zones takes fantasy basketball to a whole new level. Episodes are typically between 3 and 8 minutes long and are distributed on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. The writers of Game of Zones are well versed in the NBA, the internet, and comedy.
Prior to starting your packet, you should watch episodes from previous seasons here:
After that, please complete the sections below.
In addition to submitting your application online, please send your packets to Friday, November 16th, 2018.Once you send your submission to the email, we will send you a submission agreement to complete prior to us reading or considering your packet.
You can write your submission in whatever program you prefer, but please submit it as a PDF. It is very important that your name, email, phone number - any identifying information - is listed on the cover page (part 1) ONLY. This is because we will be removing the cover pages and reading all submissions blind.
Please include a brief cover letter, your contact info, as well as links to anything you've worked on that you're proud of and would like to share. Keep this on a separate page as it will not be read along with your writing samples. Resumes are welcome, but not required.
Write 3 short pitches for potential Game of Zones episodes. These can be written out in paragraph form or with bullet points, whatever is best to get your point across.
Write 1 Game of Zones script. Format your script however you are comfortable, just make sure it is internally consistent and easy to understand. Please make sure the length of the script is consistent with the length of a Game of Zones episode (approximately 7 - 13 pages long).
Submit 2 pieces of writing you have done previously. They can be sketches, short stories, listicles. Anything that shows off your personal sense of humor.
