Training course designed for international scriptwriters, writer/directors and producers willing to develop original and commercially viable TV series projects.


SeriesLab is the annual programme, aimed at developing innovative and marketable international fiction TV series projects.

The lab stands out for involving all the main players connected to TV series production - scriptwriters, producers, distributors, broadcasters and so on - and for offering a close link between scriptwriting process and TV industry.

 SeriesLab is addressed to scriptwriters, writer-directors and producers coming from all over the world. The programme is open to up to 9 projects and foresees 3 residential workshops taking place over a period of 6 months plus some online sessions in between each module.


It follows the entire process of creation of a TV series concept: from determining the fundamental building blocks of the project through creating the story of the season to writing the pilot episode, thanks to the support of highly qualified tutors and industry professionals.

The selected participants work in 3 groups, each of them guided by an experienced script tutor. A story editor trainee – who works side by side with the tutor – completes each group. SeriesLab offers lectures and one-to-one meetings with different experts from the industry, such as production mentors, creative advisor, pitching trainer etc.

Both SeriesLab and SeriesLab Story Editing conclude and complete the training with a final presentation at an industry event, during which they have the opportunity to network with an audience of international writers, producers, broadcasters and other film industry professionals, and are granted visibility thanks to the TFL Catalogue 

Moreover, at the end of the programme TorinoFilmLab assigns a development grant of 10,000 € to one of the projects. The selection of the grant-winner project is done by an international and prestigious Jury nominated by TFL.
