About TFL Extended – TV Series
TFL Extended – TV Series is a TorinoFilmLab training workshop addressed to teams of international professionals, who want to strengthen their techniques and skills to develop and produce a TV Series project.

The heart of the workshop is to offer to international professionals the tools necessary to develop their own original and ambitious TV Series projects.
