NFTS Leeds and Channel 4 / 4 Skills are delighted to offer 10 places to emerging talented writers on this fully funded online course: 


The 30 minute TV programme format is extremely popular. In this online writing course, writers and creative producers will have a 'Writers Room' experience with the chance to plan and write a 30-minute pilot episode of an original series over an intensive 6 day period.

Be prepared to write and re-write, and fine-tune overnight.

We will encourage the kind of ambition achieved by the best drama series based on the actual practice of working on a script among professionals.

Led by Peter Ansorge whose award-winning career includes: A Very British Coup, Traffik, GBH, The Politician’s Wife, Tales of the City, Brookside and The Camomile Lawn.

We are looking for fresh ideas and the tenacity to bring them to screen!
