ShowbizJobs Note: This is a Fall 2020 remote internship opportunity and available to applicants across the country. Whether you live in cities such as New York, Chicago, Atlanta, or Los Angeles, you can still apply for this position.

We're going remote for the Fall 2020 internship semester! We recognize that in this unique time, connecting students with opportunities to learn and grow is more important than ever. NBCUniversal’s commitment to developing early career talent has never been stronger.

Our Interns are a diverse and curious community of innovators and trail blazers. They bring their passion for media, entertainment and technology along with their desire to learn each day. They contribute to the company in ways that matter. We engage them all semester long with program-wide opportunities for professional development, leadership exposure, networking and fun – all from the comfort of their own home.

Universal Studios Group encompasses our award-winning powerhouse television studios – Universal Television (UTV), Universal Content Productions (UCP), and NBCUniversal International Studios.

Universal Television (UTV) is one of the industry's leading television studios, producing content for a wide array of networks covering broadcast, cable, and streaming. UTV's 50+ current series include Little America (Apple TV+), Master of None (Netflix), On The Spectrum (Amazon Prime Video), Saved By The Bell (Peacock), Mapleworth Murders (Quibi), The Gilded Age (HBO), The Bold Type (Freeform), The Baker & The Beauty (ABC), FBI (CBS), Duncanville (FOX), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (NBC), Good Girls (NBC), and the Law & Order and Chicago franchises (NBC). UTV also develops international series for networks around the globe in countries like the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

This internship will work with the UTV creative departments:
• Development (drama, comedy, and international) which seek out new show ideas, target networks to sell series to, and foster the creative management of writers and directors at the birth of the series.
• Current Programming takes over from development when a show is picked up to series and continues the creative management process throughout the life of the show overseeing writers, directors, and production.
• Casting seeks out actors for all roles throughout the life of the series and looks to discover new and upcoming talent.
• Office of the President includes the support staff for the head of the studio who oversees all departments including creative, production, finance, BA, and PR.
