Following the success of our 2010 initiative, Little Brother’s Big Opportunity, we are once again offering a talented writer £1000 to develop an original television drama idea of theirs through to treatment stage with us.
We remain as committed as ever to championing and supporting new writing talent, and continue to develop original drama projects for television with some of the brightest emerging writers. Little Brother’s Big Opportunity II is an endeavour to discover new writing talent, and to develop with them compelling, original drama for television.
To be eligible, writers must have had one piece of their work professionally produced or, at the very least, have had a professional reading of their work. Writers who have contributed episodes to UK television series or serials (e.g. a long running soap) are eligible to apply, but writers who have already had an original single, series or serial broadcast on UK television are not eligible to enter. No prior writing experience for television is required.
To apply, writers must submit their writing CV and the piece of their work of which they are most proud, that best demonstrates their talent, (this could be a stage play, a radio play or a screenplay) to:
Little Brother’s Big Opportunity II
Little Brother Productions
155x Northcote Road
London, SW11 6QB
The deadline for submissions is August 31st 2012.
A winner will be announced by November 2012.
Please note that all applications must be sent by post and that, unless a stamped, addressed envelope is included, work will not be returned.
