The recipient will meet with teams in production, branding, acquisition, strategy, research, scheduling and more — with a focus in the drama and comedy departments.

The ideal candidate is an emerging Canadian screen-based media professional who is passionate about production and development with a focus on scripted broadcast content. The candidate is independent, curious, and has an interest in the business of broadcasting.
