UKTV and TriForce Creative Network announce finalists for WriterSlam!
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 produced for UKTV’s award-winning comedy entertainment channel Dave.
1600 entries were shortlisted down to SIX and those writers will now receive paid development and an opportunity to work with a script editor to progress their idea 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.
And the finalists are….
- Anna Costello
- Misha Ade
- Prithu Banerjee & Sruti Banerjee
- Leon Mayne
- Naomi Sumner Chan
- Kate Reid & Zak Ghazi-Torbati
Congratulations to everyone who was shortlisted – those entries constituted the top 3%.
And a huge congratulations to our six finalists. We’re looking forward to working with you!
