BET Networks and Tracy Oliver’s production company, Tracy Yvonne Yvonne Productions, are teaming up to allow aspiring and emerging TV writers to develop an original comedy for the small screen with the nationwide competition Project Cre8.
BET will buy the winning script for $25,000 and work with the winner and Tracy Yvonne Productions to create a comedy series for BET Networks.
“We are so thrilled to partner with BET on Project CRE8,” said Oliver. “With this contest, we look forward to discovering and cultivating brilliant new comedic voices.”
Brooklyn native Quincy Ledbetter won last year and developed his original comedy Alieu the Dreamerover the summer, which filmed in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Project CRE8 is a reflection of BET’s ongoing commitment to create a pipeline of diverse content creators and eliminate barriers to access, allowing these young creators to do what they do best: create,” said Connie Orlando, EVP of Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy at BET Networks. “It’s through our partnerships with content creators at the top of their game like Tracy Oliver and Tracy Yvonne Productions that we’re able to reach back and put the next generation of content creators on, which is one of the most fulfilling aspects of this project.”
