Virgin Media Television Issue Call for Submissions for New Drama Series
15 Aug 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Virgin Media Television (formerly TV3 Group) is currently seeking submissions for a new post-watershed, six-part drama, for 2019/2020, as part of its on-going Drama Initiative.

This is an invitation to explore contemporary themes, new and exciting visual styles and narratives focusing on original, noisy ideas with a view to potentially returnable, “brand-defining” series.

This is also an excellent opportunity to mix both established and new creative production techniques and talent, with the aim of attaching new, upcoming names alongside more prominent, internationally recognisable faces.

The overall style and production values must strive for international standards and appeal, with content that may be of interest to a wider audience.

Above all, confident storytelling is a must. Virgin Media Television is seeking high quality series, with great characters, strong plots and emotionally engaging tales that reflect the contemporary world, the issues and dramas that affect all our lives, and the milestones of modern living.

The budget is to be made up of local funding, grant initiatives and international partners complementing our initial investment. Companies submitting projects should demonstrate a successful track record in raising such funds and managing multiple stake holders.

Individuals with strong, developed concepts may be required to combine their pitch with a production company with a proven track record.

Deadline: Submissions for the Drama Initiative are expected on or before Friday, 31st August 2018.

Submissions will be accepted through the commissioning portal – here.
