Coming Up TV screenwriting comp (UK)


COMING UP is the only talent scheme currently in the UK where emerging film-makers have the opportunity to make an authored drama with a guaranteed network broadcast. Now in its tenth year, Channel 4 and Touchpaper TV, part of the RDF Media Group, continue their commitment to innovation, experimentation and new voices.

We will make up to 7 eye-catching, innovative, challenging films from the best fresh talent in the UK. Each film will be for a half-hour C4 slot and we are looking for:

Bold, original and surprising ideas with strong voices - unafraid of ambition, wit, urgency and fearless entertainment.

Films that can be shot in 4 days on a limited budget

WRITERS: This scheme is open to all writers who have NOT had an ORIGINAL single, series or serial broadcast on UK television; writers who have contributed episodes to series or serials (e.g. a long-running soap) are eligible to apply.

DIRECTORS: The scheme is open to directors without a primetime TV drama credit.

WRITER / DIRECTORS: We will accept submissions from Writer/Directors (as above) but excellence in BOTH disciplines must be shown to be considered in this category.

The closing date for receipt of applications is:WEDNESDAY 9th JUNE 2010

ALL applications are by POST ONLY: COMING UP 2011, Touchpaper, 3-6 Kenrick Place, London W1U 6HD

Full guidelines and application forms are available on the Touchpaper and Channel 4 websites as below or email specific queries to ComingUp@touchpapertv.com
