ABOUT THE DISNEY ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION DIRECTING PROGRAM

The Disney Entertainment (DET) Directing Program connects directors to opportunities on DET scripted primetime and daytime series, as well as unscripted/alternative series. Launched in 2001, the Program has evolved from a shadowing program to one that guarantees episodes to first-time scripted television directors. The unscripted program guarantees directing segments on select unscripted DET series. One director will be selected as the inaugural FX Singleton Directing Scholar, and will be assigned to shadow and direct an episode of an FX Networks series. The program provides selected participants on-set shadowing/immersion prior to directing; access and exposure to DET creative executives, producers, showrunners, and alumni; and mentorship and limited professional development.
