BBC Studios Writers' Workshop 2021
BBC Studios is excited to announce the 2021 cohort of the BBC Studios Writers' Workshop, a scheme which aims to find and develop the next generation of drama series creators from across the UK.
The Writers’ Workshop gives writers the chance to develop their own original series with the help of acclaimed screenwriting expert and drama producer, John Yorke, and pitch that series to some of the British television industry’s top companies, including BBC Studios (Good Omens), and the BBC’s affiliated independent production companies, including Various Artists Limited (I May Destroy You), Clerkenwell (The End Of The F***Ing World), Cuba Pictures (McMafia), House Productions (Brexit: The Uncivil War) and Moonage Pictures (Curfew), to name just a few.
