Pitching and Producing TV

What’s involved in pitching and producing TV drama and other scripted shows? When is an idea ready to be taken to the next stage, and what is the best way to do so? What types of projects are broadcasters looking for, and what about new players in the local industry like Netflix and Stan? What is the role of independent production amongst changing industry dynamics?

Presented by the School of Media, Film and Journalism as part of the TV Bites Industry Panel Series.
