Storyland Beckons

7th October 2008

RTÉ is looking for applications for Storyland, a new 6-part drama series, which will be aired on their web site.

Pilot first episodes of up to ten new drama series will be commissioned by RTÉ and the audience will decide, by voting on-line, which six will get to make a second episode.

The second episodes will again be voted on by the audience and four series will get to make a 3rd episode and so on until only one series gets to make all 6 episodes.

Each episode needs to be between 3 to 7 minutes long. If commissioned your budget is a maximum of eight thousand euro per ep, meaning you get nearly 50 grand for your series if you make it to the end.

The pilots will be up from March 2009, with the series webcast between then and September 2009.

A panel chaired by Irish scriptwriter and actor Mark O’Halloran will choose the first ten winning entries.

Applications forms and information on how to apply for the scheme is available on the web site. The deadline for submissions is noon on 17 November 2008.
