Lena Waithe Teaming With AT&T And Fullscreen For Mentor Program 19 Jun 2018 04:53 PM EST

Lena Waithe seems to be doing all she can to discover and mentor diverse filmmakers. The actress, writer and producer from such shows as Netflix’s “Master of None” and Showtime’s “The Chi” is teaming up with Fullscreen and AT&T’s Hello Lab to mentor diverse aspiring filmmakers. “The only way change can happen is by helping to create it. And that’s exactly why I’ve invested in this mentorship program,” Waithe said in a statement. “These diverse and talented filmmakers need guidance to get them where they need to be. We’re here to help them find their place in this business and tell their story.” Earlier this month, Waithe also joined Eva Longoria, Franklin Leonard of “The Black List” and Charles King’s production house Macro to launch an initiative to discover and advance the work of writers of color in TV. The AT&T Hello Lab mentorship program Waithe is now a part of is in its second year. Its mission is to pair entertainment industry leaders with aspiring filmmakers from groups traditionally underrepresented in the industry. This year the program features scripts from majority-female writers stories from often underrepresented Native American and Asian American communities. “The stories are as deep, beautiful and amazing as the voices telling them. It’s crucial we help find more ways to support the world getting a chance to see them,” Valerie Vargas, head of advertising and creative services at AT&T, said in a statement. “The AT&T Hello Lab Mentorship Program elevates independent voices, providing them with a large platform, and helps emerging artists navigate challenges that come with bringing a project to life by pairing them with leaders who have walked down this path before.”
