TV Drama: Creating the Bible

National Film & Television School | Beaconsfield

"I don’t want to sound dramatic, but (the course) is truly life changing. Thank you all". Douglas Lan, course participant.

This eight-week course, run in association with all3media, aims to give participants the skills and know how they need to create a high end television drama series.

Television drama has entered an unprecedented era of international acclaim and success. High value drama series like The Crown, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad have challenged and enthused audiences across the world with TV drama that is original, complex and non-formulaic.

There is a new appetite among UK drama commissioners and independent producers to develop work along such original lines.

All NFTS students can attend the School’s masterclasses programme, with recent guests including Martin McDonagh (In BrugesThree Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (FleabagKilling Eve), Asif Kapadia (AmySennaDiego Maradona),  Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really HereWe Need to Talk About Kevin), Louis Theroux, and M Night Shyamalan (The Sixth SenseGlass).

"I don’t want to sound dramatic, but (the course) is truly life changing. Thank you all". Douglas Lan, course participant.

What you will study

‘TV Drama – Creating The Bible’ is an eight-week course, requiring at least three days’ attendance at the NFTS in Beaconsfield each week, that aims to equip writers and producers with the knowledge and skills required to create a high-end ten-part drama series.

Participants will write and complete a full bible and pilot episode for a drama series that has the potential of running over more than one season.

The course does not follow any received academic view about screenwriting but will create the actual conditions of working on an original drama project over a period of time among professionals with a proven track record.

All3Media, one of the UK's leading independent companies, sponsors this Certificate course. Bursaries are available according to need and background. During the course, participants will meet and pitch to Heads of Drama at leading ALl3Media TV companies such as Neal Street and Company Pictures who, if excited by your project, will have first refusal in producing and developing it further.
