TV Drama - Creating The Bible Certificate

Give yourself the skills and know-how to create a high-end television drama series. Used by screenwriters for information on characters, settings and other elements of a television show, the pitch bible is one of the core elements to getting a project off the ground.

Course Outline

Run in association with All3Media – one of the UK’s leading independent companies. 

Television drama has entered an unprecedented era of international acclaim and success. High value drama series like The Crown, House of The Dragon and Succession 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.

This blended-learning course will give you the learning flexibility and the knowledge and skills required to create a high-end ten-part drama series.

What You'll Study

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

The course simulates real industry working conditions as you develop an original drama project alongside professionals with a proven track record.

During the course, you will meet and pitch to Heads of Drama at leading All3Media TV companies such as Neal Street Productions and Company Pictures who, if excited by your project, could have first refusal in producing and developing it further.

This eight-week course requires at least three days’ attendance (normally Monday to Wednesday) each week.

Entry Requirements

Applicants do not necessarily need to have an undergraduate degree to apply for this course, but must be able to clearly demonstrate a good level of ability in the field of writing and/or producing, have a real passion for drama and be fully committed to a career in it.

Bursaries are available for freelancers with a disability or who are from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
