The Production Assistant Initiative creates an opportunity for ethnically diverse production assistants to work on an NBC show over the course of a season. All NBC scripted and unscripted series produced by Universal Television and Universal Television Alternative Studio are participating in the annual initiative.
To be considered as a Production Assistant on one of our shows, submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis.  Please email your resume and cover letter to [email protected]


The Production Office Coordinator Program gives ethnically diverse participants an opportunity to shadow a production office coordinator on an NBC series. Selected candidates on scripted shows will shadow on a full season of an NBC show, while finalists on unscripted series will rotate through several shows during their production period.

The Production Office Coordinator Program is one of the tent-pole initiatives within the NBC Talent Infusion Programs (NBC TIPS) that promotes and encourages people of diverse backgrounds.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be able to legally work in the United States
  • Have production assistant experience. Key PA or APOC experience is preferred but not required

Submission requirements:

  • Resume detailing production experience
  • Bio
  • Responses to two short essay questions
  • One letter of recommendation from an advocate (optional)

The submission form will open Thursday, May 23, 2019 and will CLOSE Friday, June 14, 2019 at 11:59pm PT.
