The industry coalition already has recognized 34 films with its gender-parity stamp of honor.

Having already recognized 34 films with its gender-parity stamp of honor, ReFrame is looking to the small screen next.

The industry coalition is calling for scripted television programs to submit themselves for consideration for the first-ever ReFrame Stamp for television. The criteria remains the same as for movies: Recipients must have hired women in at least four out of eight critical production areas: writer, producer, lead, co-lead, speaking parts, department heads and crew.

The window of eligibility coincides with the Emmy calendar; that is, any series, limited series or telepics (on any medium, including streamers) that aired between June 1, 2017, and May 31, 2018. Submissions are accepted through Oct. 10 at reframeproject.org/tvstamp-submission.

ReFrame, a coalition of now more than 60 high-level industry executives and creatives, and stamp program partner IMDbPro will review the submissions. Projects that have received the stamp so far include Girls Trip, Lady Bird, The Post, Wonder Woman and Crazy Rich Asians.
