OTHER is an interdisciplinary showcase of NYU, Tisch School of the Arts alumni, with a focus on diverse artists whose voices are underrepresented in the television industry.

The event will feature six diverse emerging writers who will be selected to present ten-minutes of an original unproduced pilot. Each pilot script will be paired with an established Showrunner who will direct the live staged reading and an emerging or mid-career Filmmaker who will create a 90-second cinematic look book that establishes the tone and style of the pilot.

OTHER breaks the mold of traditional readings and delivers a high energy, quick-paced, integrative performance that embodies the spirit of Tisch School of the Arts.

The audience will be comprised of industry professionals (including Showrunners, Development Directors, Producers), NYU alumni, and a small group of additional invited guests. Following the showcase, we will pump up the music and pop open the champagne for a night of networking with our Los Angeles Tisch community.
