This year we are racking up the body count!

Since 2018 Serial Eyes has been part of the pan-European “Detecting Transcultural Identity in European Popular Crime Narratives” (DETECt) Project, a three-year research project that brings together universities and educational institutions from France, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Romania, Denmark, and Germany. Serial Eyes will design an online webinar for writing TV crime series this year and host a scriptwriting competition in 2020/21.

For this reason, a number of our workshops and extracurricular events will be geared towards examining what makes crime work on television. In conjunction with our research partners, we want to design new approaches to instruction in order to redefine (crime) writing in this new age of European TV.
