1) For the first time – in 7 years – SeriesLab will accept applications from screenwriters, directors and producers coming from all over the world (not just Europe). An international class of up to 9 teams (and 9 projects) will start working together for 5 months from September, ending with a final presentation in front of selected professionals of the international television industry.
2) One of the 9 projects will also get a development grant of €10,000 (!) to support the growth of the story.
3) This year SeriesLab Talents - which is a writers' room including 5 international professional screenwriters working on the development of a TV series project – and SeriesLab will be quite intertwined, giving a chance to the participants to network and exchange ideas, also because…
4) …they’ll share the same Head of Studies, guiding both programmes: Eszter Angyalosy, a Hungarian screenwriter who, also thanks to her experience with HBO Hungary, worked on the development of a dozen original series of various genres and much more.
These are just some bites of information about these two great programmes, you can have a whole overview here for SeriesLab and here for SeriesLab Talents, but in case of any doubts drop a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind, both calls for applications expire on 31st March!
