The fifth edition of The C21 Drama Series Script Competition (#C21scriptcomp) is now open for entries, aiming to uncover the Next Big Thing in scripted entertainment.
The competition is produced in association with Studio21, WritersRoom and Script Angel. Screen Yorkshire is a promotional partner of the initiative, that is looking for six outstanding pilot episode scripts (for an internationally compelling drama series) to compete for an unrivalled prize at The International Drama Summit, part of Content London in November.
From the pool of submissions made between 10 July 2019 and 4 October 2019, a shortlist of 21 scripts will be selected and six finalists will be chosen to present their script to the global drama business, including key commissioners from digital platforms including Amazon, Netflix and Hulu, to broadcasters from ABC, BBC and C4 to YLE, and ZDF, attending Content London (3rd – 5th December). Shortlisted entries will be notified on 20 October 2019 and the finalists will be announced on 23 October 2019.
