Element Pictures (Normal People, The Favourite), BBC Writersroom and BBC Drama Commissioning are looking for the next generation of television writers who have bold and original stories to tell.
Open to both emerging and established writers, this programme will offer the opportunity to develop an original series idea for BBC One, BBC Two or BBC Three with Element Pictures. Four writers will be chosen to write a treatment commission; from those four, one idea will then be developed into a full pilot script.
This scheme is looking for stories that haven’t yet been told about Northern Ireland: the emotionally powerful, thought-provoking, inspiring, celebratory, relevant or surprising narratives that reflect the variety and diversity of life there today – and also speak to a global audience.
