The intensive workshop is designed to help integrating a series division into the producers’ companies and deepen their knowledge of developing and producing TV drama series for an international audience. All selected producers have applied with a series in development. The Series Special will take place in Brussels in early December.
With an increasing demand for content and with a market that is changing daily, producers are looking for new ways of working and diversifying their output. Focusing primarily on the creative and financial aspects of TV series production, the ACE Series Special offers sessions on working with broadcasters, marketing, audiences, international approaches, and business strategies.
The workshop will give producers a chance to work on their projects through one-to-one meetings with experts and group sessions with their peers benefiting from good practices and advise with regards to different territories, specific legal and financing structures, and business insights.
ACE director Jacobine van der Vloed: “The demand for series continues to increase and the landscape of series production is constantly developing. We’re glad to be able to offer these demonstrably talented producers a chance to gain further insight into the industry and to get their projects to where they need to be”.
Thanks to VAF and CFAP for their valuable support, to our media partner Variety and Variety Intelligence Platform and also to the international series festival, Series Mania for the fruitful partnership!
