Our most popular WriterSlam competition yet, in partnership with UKTV, received close to 1600 entries with writers all vying for an opportunity to have their project filmed and shown on UKTV’s award-winning comedy entertainment channel Dave.
A team of readers read through all the entries and shortlisted 58 to go through to the next stage of the competition.
UKTV will now choose just SIX and offer paid development and an opportunity to work with a script editor to develop those ideas into a 30-minute script.
From those six scripts, UKTV will select four to be produced by either TriForce Productions or another independent production company before premiering on Dave in 2022!
The standard was, as always, very high, so it was difficult to whittle down the entries, but we will have more opportunities later this year, so please do keep an eye on thetcn.com.
Congratulations to all our shortlisted writers, we can’t wait to see which projects make it to the next stage!
