The Galway Film Centre has announced two further panels to add to the already star-studded line-up for its upcoming ‘Talking TV Drama’ seminar, to be held in Galway’s Harbour Hotel on the 17th and 18th of October.

To weigh in on writing TV drama for a younger audience GFC will host industry experts behind some of the most successful children and young adult’s television in Great Britain and Ireland today.

Bryan Elsley is the co-creator of teenage drama ‘Skins’ and comedy series ‘Dates’, as well as the 1996 mini-series adaptation of Iain Banks’ novel ‘The Crow Road. He will be joined by showrunner of E4’s ‘My Mad Fat Diary’ Tom Bidwell, whose short film ‘Wish 143’ was nominated for an Oscar in 2011.

Rounding out the panel is Melanie Stokes, co-founder of Kindle Entertainment, which has received the BAFTA for Independent Production Company of the Year for two years running and was behind the Sky One adaptation of ‘Treasure Island’, starring Eddie Izzard and Elijah Wood. The panel will be moderated by Máire Ní Chonláin, commissioning editor with TG4.

In keeping with this year’s focus on writers, Galway Film Centre has capped off its 2013 programme with the addition of a panel focusing on RTÉ series ‘Amber', a four-part drama looking at the aftermath of a fourteen-year-old girl’s abduction in Dublin. The panel will feature the entire writing staff of Paul Duane, Gary Duggan and Rob Cawley and will be chaired by former ‘Raw’ writer Muirinn Lane Kelly.

As previously reported , Galway Film Centre’s seminar will also feature panels with creators and cast of the recently-returned ‘Love/Hate’, as well as former X-Files showrunner Frank Spotnitz.
