Following the success of their 2010 & 2012 initiatives, Little Brother Productions are again offering a talented writer £1000 to develop an original television drama idea of theirs through to treatment.
This continues their commitment to championing and supporting new writing talent, and developing original drama projects for television with some of the brightest emerging writers in the UK. Little Brother’s Big Opportunity III is an endeavour to discover further new writing talent, and to develop with them compelling, original drama.
To be eligible, writers must have had one piece of their work professionally produced or, at the very least, have had a professional reading of their work. Writers who have contributed episodes to UK television series or serials (e.g. a long running soap) are eligible to apply, but writers who have already had an original single, series or serial broadcast on UK television are not eligible to enter. No prior writing experience for television is required.
How to apply: writers must submit their writing CV and the piece of their work of which they are most proud, that best demonstrates their talent (this could be a stage play, a radio play or a screenplay) to:
Little Brother’s Big Opportunity III
Little Brother Productions
London, E8 1JR
Please note that all applications must be sent by post and that unless a stamped, addressed envelope is included, work will not be returned.
Deadline: 3 October 2014
