TFL Next - TV Series 2022

 

WHAT

TV NEXT TV SERIES
 

The development of TV Series requires a mix of creativity and a genuine sense of team spirit between writers, story editors and other stakeholders such as producers and broadcasters.

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

The workshop is concept-based, which means that participants exclusively work on the concept of the TV series project. In case of projects based on novels, short stories or other literary works, applicants must present a secured option for the work they wish to adapt.
 

The workshop is divided into 2 development sessions:

- a first 5 day-long session, where participants discuss their work in group sessions and one-on-one meetings with their tutors

- then, participants have 3 weeks to rework their materials 

- a second 2 day-long session, where participants share and discuss their work again in individual meetings with their mentors and group sessions with other participants.
