Online television writing student Nadiya Chettiar has landed a staff writer position on the Canadian multi-cam sitcom Some Assembly Required, about a group of teenagers who run a toy company, which airs on YTV.

Nadiya thanks the Writers’ Program for setting her on a course towards success. “After hemming and hawing about whether to sign up, I was very lucky to be placed in Lisa Rosenthal’s class. This was my first class through the Writers’ Program, but not my first writing class, and boy, did Lisa show me the way. I very quickly realized my decision to take this class was a game changer. Not only did I learn a TON under Lisa’s tutelage, I also ended up with a sample that would land me my first job!”

Congratulations, Nadiya!

Please note: The Writers’ Program staff apologizes for the incorrect headline printed in the summer 2015 catalog ad that features Nadiya Chettiar. The headline should read: “I Got Staffed.” We regret the error.
