Filmmaking is the miracle of collaboration
— James McAvoy

.... that's why we've created the Mamba Collective... we want to engage + collaborate with writers and comedians around the world.

At Blonde Mamba, we believe that every writer should have an equal chance to succeed, even if you haven’t graduated school yet... That’s why we’re building an explosive platform for Gen Z creatives to collaborate, cultivate and express.  A writers room before the writers room, the Collective will work on slated ‘Blonde Mamba’ projects as well as develop new ideas together.

The Mamba Collective bridges the gap between emerging talent and the workforce. The Collective gives 8 new writers the space to gain writer’s room experience and develop their own ideas. The monthly meetings work to develop writer’s original content and crack Blonde Mamba’s current IP and co-productions (with companies like Anonymous Content, Refinery29, MGM and eOne). At the end of the Collective’s term all the members will have the opportunity to pitch their shows.

Think the Wing meets Black List, you’ll:

  • Collective meets once a month for a year (June 2019 - May 2020) in Hollywood.
