RespectAbility Children’s Content Lab for Disabled TV Creators, 2022
Miranda Hoyt is a writer/director currently working on her MFA in Film at Columbia University. She loves writing screenplays about ghosts, movie theaters, and stolen drum sets.
After an extensive search and interview process, 15 individuals were invited to participate in RespectAbility’s inaugural cohort of the Children’s Content Lab. This new Lab provides education and training for disabled writers, animators, and creative executives interested in preschool and children’s television and streaming content. Supported by Netflix’s Fund for Creative Equity, the Children’s Content Lab spans five weeks and includes in-person programming in New York City with production partners 9 Story Media Group and Silvergate Media, a part of Sony Pictures Television.
