The first ten pages with Tom Needham
8pm-9pm online via Zoom
Your script needs to work it like a snake-charmer from the very start if you're to be in with even half a chance of getting it produced. So what are the key ingredients of a real page-turner that will grab a commissioner's attention? Hmmm. Why not find out from a seasoned pro, someone who's written a gazillion telly episodes and who is also brilliant at sharing his wisdom?
"You find that plays, radio dramas, TV series and movies are written by people just like you. They fret, they struggle, occasionally triumph. They live in Yorkshire. They belong to Script Yorkshire."
