Developing and Pitching Drama

Content Tabs

This course is for writers, script editors, producers and people with ideas for making television drama or feature films.

It will take you through the process of practising and delivering a successful verbal pitch, which is a crucial skill to acquire for anyone wanting to work in the industry today.

Over three days, the course explores how best to develop drama proposals, script outlines or un-commissioned scripts and how to target and pitch these to potential financiers, sales agents and distributors.

It will make you think realistically about your ideas and give you a framework for going forward. If you’ve been struggling on your own, it will give you invaluable feedback, suggestions and ways of packaging your ideas.

This course is led by NFTS's own Peter Ansorge (Ex-commissioning Editor and Head of Channel 4 Drama) whose award-winning career includes: A Very British Coup, Traffik, GBH, The Politician’s Wife, Tales of the City, Brookside and The Camomile Lawn.

Previous course participants have said:

'Hugely insightful comments that developed my pitch - and project - in a positive way.'

'Peter's knowledge and experience was so valuable and he was generous in sharing both.' 'It was invaluable to get feedback from someone who was working at such a high level in the industry and was honest and tactful in his approach, feedback and insight.'
