MEDIA Desk Ireland and MEDIA Antenna Galway, with the collaboration of the Network of European MEDIA Desks, have published a Drama Directory with contact details for Drama Commissioning Editors and Buyers in 17 European countries.
The directory was launched to aid the organisation of broadcasters for funding application purposes. The MEDIA Programme supports Television Drama at the development stage through the Single project and Slate Funding support schemes and there is a dedicated action line to support the Television Broadcasting of European Audiovisual works including TV Drama. Both of these schemes call for investment from at least three broadcasters in different member states of the European Union, the new Drama Directory aims to be a valuable resource for potential applicants.
