November 22, 2021 New Focused Training Opportunity to Support Recently-Graduated Black Youth Interested in the Lifestyle and Factual Content Genres To share this release socially visit: https://bit.ly/3kYyraS

For Immediate Release

TORONTO, November 22, 2021 - Corus Entertainment has teamed up with OYA Emerging Filmmakers to launch the Corus Unscripted Internship Program, a newly-created training, networking and mentorship opportunity for Black emerging filmmakers who have completed post-secondary education and are interested in pursuing a television career in the lifestyle and factual genres.

As a complement to the OYA Emerging Filmmakers program (which supports recently-graduated Black youth focused on developing their careers in film, television and digital media), the Corus Unscripted Internship Program will also provide two participants with an eight-week paid internship placement on a Corus-supported unscripted production in 2022.

The Corus Unscripted Internship Program will serve as a pathway to employment and provide unique opportunities for participants to gain experience and network as they look to build their careers in the unscripted space, said Colin Bohm, Executive Vice President, Content and Corporate Strategy, Corus Entertainment. We are excited to partner with OYA Emerging Filmmakers on this new program given our focused efforts to nurture and develop young Black creators and leaders in a truly meaningful and purposeful way.

Working with Corus to expose up and coming Black talent to the world of unscripted television is a groundbreaking moment for our mission. Corus offers a pathway for our participants to gain meaningful experience in the behind the scenes of today's television, said Alison Duke, Co-Founder, OYA Media Group. We are looking forward to continuing the relationship and providing our current and future participants this incredible opportunity to gain professional exposure and relationships from a leading media establishment.

The 2021/22 OYA Emerging Filmmakers cohort is already underway for this year.
