Applications are open for ScreenSkills Series Producer Programme

The highly regarded ScreenSkills Series Producer Programme will return for its sixth run in 2023.

The programme, which aims to develop the skills and confidence of the participating Producers/Directors enabling them to successfully transition into sought after Series Producers or Showrunners, will be delivered by TRC.

Running from February through to October 2023, this year the Series Producer Programme will work exclusively with participants based in the Nations & Regions, giving them the knowledge, skills, and network to make the move from Producer to Series Producer with confidence, and help develop the next generation of showrunners who will become the cornerstones of UK television.

Participants on the programme will benefit from exclusive access to leading broadcasters and commissioners, in addition to in-person and online training sessions all under the guidance of an assigned industry mentor.

The Series Producer Programme is supported by the ScreenSkills Unscripted TV Skills Fund which invests in training for the unscripted workforce thanks to contributions from BBC, Channel 4, Sky, A+E Networks UK, Discovery UK, Channel 5, Netflix, ITV, Amazon and UKTV matched by production companies.

Applications are now open, with a deadline of Monday 12th December.
