Call for TG4 Scripts

31st October 2007 by Maura McHugh

TG4 and Dearg Films are looking for scripts in Irish for their forthcoming TV series Seomra a Sé, which will be broadcast live in March 2008.

The series will entail four half-hour dramas in any genre, which will be set in a hotel suite: number six of course. This means that each 25-minute script needs to be written in Irish, suitable for a live performance, and has to remain within the confines of a hotel suite that has a bedroom, living area, bathroom and bar.

The closing date for application is December 14, 2007.
