The Guy Hanks and Marvin Miller Writing program was established by Drs. Bill and Camille Cosby in 1993, at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. It was named in honor of Camille's father, Guy Alexander Hanks and Bill's producer, Marvin Miller.

The fifteen-week intensive workshop was designed with a two-fold purpose:
  • To assist writers in the completion of a film or television script.
  • To deepen the participants appreciation for and comprehension of African American history and culture.
