Want to develop your own TV drama series?
BBC Studios Writers’ Academy is a unique opportunity for writers to learn from some of the biggest names in the industry and to work with some of the UK’s best television drama production companies.
Originally created to train writers for the BBC Continuing Drama Series (CDS) such as EastEnders and Casualty, this year’s course will broaden its remit to appeal to a bigger pool of writers than ever before. For the first time, the course will broaden its focus beyond CDS and instead guide writers through 6 months of paid series development.
Find out more about the updated course and how to apply on the BBC Studios Writers’ Academy website.
To make their submissions, writers must submit (PDF only) via the BBC Writersroom E-Submissions System using this link from 12pm (noon) on 11th March 2022.
This link will go live upon opening. Submissions will close at 12pm (noon) on 3rd April 2022.
