AMAZING new opportunity...
I don't know what it is at the moment, but here is ANOTHER opportunity that's come through today. And this time it's a bit of a corker. Well, if you're from Norn Iron that is. Sorry, everyone else...
Basically, it's an initiative between Northern Ireland Screen and BBC NI which offers the opportunity for two (previously unproduced) writers to have their 60 minute scripts produced in a 9pm slot on BBC 2 next year.
Send in a 60 minute script, synopsis and CV.
Deadline Feb 14 2011.
4 finalists will be announced in April and those scripts/writers will go through a development process with NI Screen and BBC NI.
In July 2 of the scripts will then be chosen and produced with a budget of 150,000. And broadcast on BBC2 at 9pm.
Wow! Best. Opp. Ever.
