THE ALTERNATIVE DIRECTORS PROGRAM is NBC’s new annual directors’ initiative that addresses the need for more representation behind the camera in unscripted programming. 

Intended for female and ethnically diverse talent with at least one directing credit, the program will give five directors the opportunity to shadow over several weeks on NBC and Universal Television Alternative Studios unscripted series including prep, production and post. 

NBC’s participating shows for the program’s inaugural year are “America’s Got Talent,” “Hollywood Game Night,” “The Voice,” “The Wall” and “World of Dance.” 

The Alternative Directors Program is one of the tentpole initiatives within the NBC Talent Infusion Programs (NBC TIPS) that promotes and encourages people of diverse backgrounds.
