The 2023 Studio21 Drama Series Script Competition (#studio21scriptcomp) has opened for entries and is looking for a pilot script for an international drama that will appeal to audiences and coproducers worldwide.
The competition connects emerging writers with the global content business, offering the winner a £10,000 development option and unique opportunity to connect with the global drama business through C21Media’s Content London in December.
The winning project will be developed by Studio21, supported by an advisory board made up of the most creative showrunners and television executives in the business including Chris Albrecht, who built HBO with shows like Sex and the City and The Sopranos to Netflix’ former head of international programming and a raft of leading showrunners who have created and run series from Criminal Minds to Rome, Shameless, Spooks, This Life and many more. Studio21 will connect the project with the right coproducer, platform, channel or partner.
From the pool of submissions, made between 15 June 2023 and 13 September 2023, a shortlist of 21 scripts will be selected and from these six finalists will be chosen to present their script to the global drama business at Content London 2023, or through the Content London digital initiative, whichever the world allows!
