May 2022 Script of the Month

Spencer Levine

May’s Script of the Month, as selected by the WGC Diversity Committee, is Prism High—a one-hour queer teen drama written by Spencer Levine. 

Spencer Levine is a Toronto-based screenwriter, whose adoration for all things television had him submitting story ideas to Global TV at 16. Through dedication, a strong work ethic, and quick learning, Spencer went from an adoring fan of captivating characters to bounding up the production ranks of popular scripted projects, like Dino Dan, Saving Hope, and Rookie Blue.

“I was curious when Spencer Levine’s script Prism High was sent to me. Why? It was billed as a teen script, and I mostly work in the mystery/procedural world,” says WGC member Cal Coons, who worked with Spencer to polish the script. “Then I read it and everything became clear. Prism High is a terrific blend of the ‘Teen Drama’ and ‘Whodunnit' genres. The characters are unique, real and raw; the mystery compelling and believable. Prism High has all the makings for a great television series, and Spencer would be an excellent addition to any writing room.” 

"I’m honoured to have my queer teen murder mystery series Prism High chosen as the WGC Script of the Month!” says Spencer. “This project has been a passion of mine as I felt that having multiple LGBTQ+ characters at the center of the story was long overdue. I aimed to tell a thrilling, entertaining tale that takes viewers along the mysterious path of a classic ‘Whodunnit,’ while shining a light on the serious concerns facing today’s queer youth. I have always loved coming-of-age stories, and my goal is to spend my career connecting youth through shared experiences so that the young viewer at home feels both seen and heard.”

Congratulations, Spencer!
