Black List launches TV diversity program with TNT and TBS

More good news for people looking to break into TV: The Black List has partnered with TNT and TBS to offer diverse writers blind script deals and TV writing staff positions.

From The Hollywood Reporter:
Submissions to the Black List website will now include episodic work for the first time ever. Submissions to the TNT and TBS initiative will be judged by the Black List's  community of industry professionals and readers. Among the five finalists, some will have the opportunity to sign script deals. 
TNT and TBS, which will be searching for both half-hour comedies and full-hour dramas, will have the option to offer blind script deals and also the ability to share finalists' work with current network showrunners in the hopes of landing staff positions for applicants.
The Black List says that it takes "a broad view of diversity guided by the WGAw writers report."
