£1000 to develop an original television drama idea through to treatment stage
Following the success of its 2010 initiative, Little Brother's Big Opportunity, BAFTA award winning television and film production company Little Brother Productions is once again offering a talented writer £1000 to develop an original television drama idea of theirs through to treatment stage with them.
Little Brother Productions, largely known for its comedy and children's productions (including Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids and The Revenge Files of Alistair Fury), is committed to championing and supporting new writing talent, and continues to develop original drama projects for television with some of the brightest emerging writers in the UK. Little Brother's Big Opportunity II is an endeavour to discover further new writing talent, and to develop with them compelling, original drama for television.
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.
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:
