SeriesLab is open to international professional scriptwriters, directors and producers. The programme follows the entire process of creation of a TV series concept: from generating ideas and structuring the material, up to a final pitch in front of major key players during a TV industry event.


SeriesLab is the annual programme, powered by TorinoFilmLab, which aims at developing innovative and marketable international TV series projects.

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

From 2023, TFL SeriesLab is addressed to scriptwriters, writer-directors and producers coming from all over the world. It is open to up to 9 projects, which will join an intensive course and foresees 3 residential workshops, plus some online sessions in between each module.


The lab follows the entire process of creation of a TV series concept, offering the support of highly qualified tutors and industry professionals, from determining the fundamental building blocks of the project through creating the story of the season and writing the pilot, up to a final presentation in front of a selection of the most relevant key players of the international TV industry, during a special final event organised by TorinoFilmLab in conjunction with one of the main European TV series markets.

Moreover, for the first time TFL will assign a development grant of € 10,000 to one of the projects. The selection of the grant-winner project will be done at the end of the lab, by a Jury nominated by TorinoFilmLab.

The aim of the training course is to create a solid and clear mini-bible of the project, highlighting its main selling points, and the first draft of the pilot episode script. The package should be accompanied by additional materials, strengthening the selling potential of the project - such as mood board, mood video, and a pitch.

Furthermore, during the training months, the SeriesLab participants, after being connected in their groups of work, will have also the chance to network with participants from the SeriesLab Talents programme.


The next call for applications will be out in January 2024.
