What is an O.W.A.?

0

When a studio or production company acquires a property with no writer attached (this property could be a book, article, play, board game, foreign movie or even just a concept) , they reach out to all the agencies and managements companies with an open writing assignment (OWA) stating that they need to hire a screenwriter to adapt the property into a script. It’s basically a job posting for writers. The OWA will describe what the job entails, talent attachment (if any), the deadline for the script, the auspices attached and the salary. Once agencies and management companies get word of the OWA, they submit the clients whom they feel will best fit the job. It’s the agent’s job to stay on top of all the studios and production companies and be aware of all the OWAs at any given time.
