BBC Writersroom – Pilot 2024

Applications to BBC Writersroom’s Pilot 2024 are open from Tuesday 5th September 2023 at 10am to 12 noon on Tuesday 26th September 2023 for credited and/or agented writers.

Writers are asked to submit an original spec script written for television (minimum 50 pages) and a one-page pitch outlining a potential television drama or comedy/drama series or serial idea for a BBC channel.

The aim of the Programme is to give writers their first original television drama or comedy/drama series or serial commission.

Selected writers must be free to attend a three day intensive workshop in 2024 (dates tbc) and available to write their script and attend a series of writing workshops, lectures and readings across the subsequent months.  They will also receive notes on their pitches and each draft of their treatment and script.

Writers will be commissioned to write a minimum of two drafts of a treatment and a minimum of three drafts of their original script. They will be paid a minimum script fee as agreed by the WGGB/PMA and the BBC on a favoured nations basis (currently £13,320 for 60 minutes).
