1 // KEEP UP with MEMBER UPDATES

  • Ensemble Member Mike Houston will appear on Season 5 of "Orange is the New Black" that debuts on Netflix Friday, June 9th. Keep a look out for good reviews and press. Forward to Mike and general membership so we can keep on top of promotion.

It meets 8 times starting Thursday June 8th at 6:30. Course Number WRIT1-CE9601. You can find it in the online catalogue for NYU SCPS. There are a few spots left and I'd love Collective people to get them. You can work on your own TV comedy spec.

    • If you have any leads on theaters or other non-traditional spaces that could be used...
