About TFL Extended – TV Series
TFL Extended - TV Series is a new 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.

TV series production requires a mix of creativity, constant challenge and genuine sense of team spirit between writers, story editors and other stakeholders such as producers and broadcasters. The heart of the workshop is to offer to international professionals the tools necessary to develop their own original and ambitious TV series projects.

TFL Extended - TV Series is open to up to 20 projects which will join an intensive 4-day-long workshop in Turin, from 6th to 9th April  2018.
