RTÉ is launching its first drama series for the web, giving the public the power to decide which of nine drama pilots it wants to see developed.
The pilots are now being webcast on www.rte.ie/storyland and viewers are being asked to vote on which of the dramas they think should be commissioned for second and subsequent episodes. The closing date for voting on the first episode is Monday 30 March. The least popular dramas will then be eliminated as the audience continues to vote on the drama they would like to see third and subsequent episodes of. The winning drama will be the only series to have all six episodes made.
The nine dramas were selected from an open competition in which programme makers were invited to make pitches for a six-part drama series to be webcast on RTÉ.ie. A panel chaired by genius Irish scriptwriter and actor Mark O’Halloran (Adam & Paul, Garage) decided on the drama pilots to be webcast on www.rte.ie/storyland.
