Actress Phylicia Rashad, recipient of the Outstanding Achievement in Television Award at the inaugural aTVfest, demystifies the artist’s struggle by claiming it is unnecessary for creative growth and that authenticity is the key to a successful career.
Congratulations to Daniel Kitron, Kelly Skinner, Cynthia Adarkwa, Dexter Blanding and Joanna Hatzikazakis on being chosen to participate in the 2013 Nickelodeon Writer’s Symposium at the inaugural SCAD aTVfest.
The presentation is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 16, at Opera, 1150 Crescent Ave., Atlanta.
Rashad is most widely known to television audiences for her roles as Clair Huxtable on “The Cosby Show” and as Ruth Lucas on the CBS sitcom “Cosby,” for which she received a NAACP Image Award for “Best Actress in a Comedy Series.” She has also been nominated for two Emmy Awards and has received two People’s Choice Awards.
Nickelodeon has partnered with aTVfest to provide aspiring screenwriters an opportunity to get their scripts in the hands of Nickelodeon executive Karen Kirkland. Applicants are encouraged to submit a spec script for review. Up to five scripts will be selected for an exclusive script review.
