Europe’s premi­er post­gradu­ate train­ing pro­gramme for tele­vi­sion writers organ­ised by DFFB

Seri­al Eyes pre­pares the next gen­er­a­tion of European TV writers/​producers to bring first-class stor­ies to the screens. The core of the pro­gram is not just about cre­at­ing an ori­gin­al TV drama series but also about devel­op­ing the abil­ity to col­lab­or­ate effect­ively with­in the Writers’ Room mod­el, as well as how to organ­ize a suc­cess­ful and pro­duct­ive Writer­’s Room.

Seri­al Eyes is fun­ded with the sup­port of Cre­at­ive Europe – Media Pro­gramme of the European Uni­on with addi­tion­al sup­port provided by our industry part­ners Medi­en­board Ber­lin-Branden­burg, Sky Ger­many, VIS, Atlantique, Dynam­ic, Real Film, and Big Light Productions.


“Trust me: none of this would have been pos­sible without Seri­al Eyes.”
