The seventh edition of the Studio21 Drama Series Script Competition (#studio21scriptcomp – formerly the C21 Drama Series Script Competition) has opened for entries and Screen Yorkshire is working with partners to help find writing talent in Yorkshire!
We’re looking for a pilot script for an international drama that will appeal to audiences and co-producers worldwide. The competition connects emerging writers with the global content business, offering the winner a £10,000 development option and a unique opportunity to connect with the global drama business through C21Media’s Content London in December.
The winning project will be developed by Studio21, supported by an advisory board made up of the most creative showrunners and executives in the business. They include Chris Albrecht, who built HBO with shows like Sex & the City and The Sopranos, to Netflix’s former head of international programming and a raft of leading showrunners who have created and run series from Criminal Minds to Rome, Shameless, Spooks, This Life and many more. Studio21 will connect the project with the right co-producer, platform, channel or partner.
