Here’s a unique opportunity to hear from the five international advisors travelling to New Zealand for Script to Screen’s first ever Episodic Lab. We are delighted to present this special event, open to anyone interested in writing and producing episodic television.
Our international advisors are a mix of episodic television creators, showrunners, story producers, executive producers and writers – often playing more than one of these roles during their years of experience. They have worked on a broad range of programmes from the drama of BORGEN to the comedy of BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD.
Over three sessions you will hear about what’s happening with episodic television in the countries our advisors are working in – Denmark, United States and Australia – and will get information about process on shows they have worked on.
Script to Screen is proud to present:
- Chris Marcil (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, FRASIER, BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD, DARIA)
- Jeppe Gjervig Gram (BORGEN, FOLLOW THE MONEY)
- Jacquelin Perske (SEVEN TYPES OF AMBIGUITY, DEADLINE GALLIPOLI, LOVE MY WAY)
