What is Impact x Skydance?
Impact x Skydance is a year-long collaboration between Impact and Skydance TV to source television content from undiscovered writers worldwide through Impact’s innovative, open application and review system with the goal of developing them into global, premium series.
How does Impact x Skydance work?
Over the course of the next year, Impact will host call-outs and online submissions across four specific prompts through which writers of all levels from around the world can apply with a well-thought out idea and writing sample.
Applications will be vetted via Impact’s review process before a subset of applicants are interviewed. From there, a group of finalists will have their proposed project presented to Skydance by the Impact team. Writers then selected by Skydance will have the opportunity to enter into an if/come agreement with Skydance to develop the project further.

How many projects will be selected and developed?
Impact and Skydance are not pre-determining the number of projects to be developed.
Will I work with a Shaper on developing my project? Will there be an in-person program component?
No, writers who are selected by Skydance for this opportunity will work directly with the Skydance TV development team on developing their project further.
How do I apply?
Applications for Elevated Contemporary Horror will open from June 21 through July 4, 2021.
We encourage those applying to first review the entirety of this Help Section carefully as it is designed to guide applicants towards a strong submission.
