BBC Writersroom Looking For Breakthrough Writing in Northern Ireland with Newest Series of 'The Break'
11 Oct 2018 :
The fourth series will launch from Northern Ireland this year, offering writers the opportunity to develop and produce their script for broadcast on BBC Three.

The aim of the series is to find the best original, contemporary stories that reflect the diversity of modern day Northern Ireland with a focus on issues and stories that are important to young people locally and further afield. Writers who make the shortlist will develop their work through workshops and one-to-one sessions with a script editor, whilst the final five successful stories will be broadcast on BBC Three next year in participation with the BBC Writersroom.

Commissioning Editor for Drama, Tommy Bulfin says:

“We’re thrilled to launch series four of The Break in Northern Ireland; the series has a proud history of unearthing fantastic new voices and it’s a brilliant opportunity for writers. The brief is for contemporary, bold, nuanced and authentic writing so we’re excited about who we might uncover.  We want to receive resonant stories we don’t usually hear from this part of the world and present them to as wide a BBC Three audience as we can.”

Anne Edyvean, Head of Writersroom added:

“I am delighted that series four of The Break is being made in Northern Ireland. There is a wealth of local writing talent, and we are looking forward both to working with writers who we know, and discovering others that we don’t. We are excited to see what stories writers want to tell on BBC Three about modern life in such a unique place – whether those stories are personal, dramatic, surreal, funny or dark.”

Applications are open now and will close at noon on Monday, November 5th, 2018.
