For 6 Month(s)

  • Job Requirements: Must be local to location (or willing to work as a local).

Needed for 6-episode established true crime series. This is Atlanta-based, preference given
to those who can work local, but will consider East Coast remote. This documentary-style, interview-
based show with subtle, cinematic recreations is in its 5 th season - but it's not formulaic. This is one you
can have fun with as long as you stay in the basic format. You will oversee two story producers and an
AP, helping them choose the right cases that fit the format, then shaping the story to bring suspense and
mystery to the show. You're someone who trusts your staff to do their jobs, but knows when to step in
and guide when needed. You're a strong writer who can help producers write pitches and treatments,
then work with writers on creating a script with intrigue and well-placed recreations with as little
dialogue as possible.

Need someone who is comfortable working on set in recreations letting directors
see their creative vision, but knowing when to step in if the story requires a shift from that vision. Will
work under the guidance of the Co-EP at the Production Company who is well-versed in the show. This is
a 26-week gig starting at story research phase and going through interviews, scripting, casting,
recreations and up to Post, when a Post Co-EP takes over.
