FilmBook is Looking for TV Critics and Journalists for 2017/18
The Fall 2017 TV season is about to begin and FilmBook is looking for new writers to cover it. We are searching for new writers to buttress our growing coverage of primetime television. This is your opportunity to join the FilmBook team.
These are the shows that we are currently looking to be covered (in no particular order):
Shooter, Halt and Catch Fire, The Tick, Ozark, The OA, The Last Kingdom, House of Cards, The Man in the High Castle, Stranger Things, The Last Ship, Cloak and Dagger, Better Call Saul, Timeless, Law & Order: SVU, Star Trek: Discovery, This is Us, Inhumans, Wynonna Earp, iZombie, The Flash, Black Lightning, 13 Reasons Why, Narcos, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders, The Punisher, Legion, Supergirl, The Gifted, Empire, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Designated Survivor, Quantico, Gotham, The Big Bang Theory, Lucifer, Black-ish, Modern Family, The Shannara Chronicles, Supernatural, The Originals, Scorpion, Teen Wolf, Legends of Tomorrow, Into the Badlands, Scandal, The Americans, Billions, NCIS, Ballers, Suits, Fargo, The Exorcist, Ash vs Evil Dead, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who, Grey’s Anatomy, Silicon Valley, and The Librarians.
What we mean by “covered” is writing reviews for each new episode following their on-air premiere (within a two day – 72 hrs – time span).
Consistency is key. Dedication is what we are looking for in new writers (along with their ability effectively convey their thoughts to the reader). You must have the time to commit to writing regular reviews on a weekly basis for the full season of a TV show.
We are not looking for re-cappers i.e. people that write what happened in a given episode. We are looking for writers that can review the events of a given episode, its actors, the episode’s themes, and all the minutiae that made an episode good, bad, mediocre, etc.
We are looking for fans of the television medium and the stories that it can tell. Are you that fan?
If you are interested in writing television reviews for FilmBook or writing TV show specific articles, essay, and editorials, please fill out the quick-to-complete form below:
*Note: The submission form will be kept open until we have a significant number of applicants. We will notify all applicants personally via email if their submission has been successful within one (1) week of the submission form being closed.
These writing opportunities are unpaid (one of the reasons why we have an ongoing Patreon campaign) but you will be given the ability to publish and expose your writing to millions of people worldwide who search for the latest reviews for their favorite TV shows on the Internet.
Some reviewers will have the opportunity watch and review TV show episodes (season premieres, pilot episodes, etc.) before they air on television via screeners.
Press passes for festivals and comic-cons through FilmBook will also be made available.
Writers will also be given the opportunity to promote their accomplishments and career (a short bio, your LinkedIn page, Tumblr account, Twitter feed, Blog, etc.) through their very own Author’s Box at the bottom of each review they publish on FilmBook. You will also be listed on our ‘About Us’ page.
If your application is successful and you prove yourself to be a consistent and steady writer, you will be given the opportunity to write and cover additional TV shows not listed in this writers notice.
Any and all questions regarding this writing opportunity may be broached below in the comments section. They will addressed and answered in a timely fashion.
Sincerely, the FilmBook Team
