Months of entry
This eight-week course, run in association with all3media, aims to give participants the skills and know how they need to create a high end television drama series.
Television drama has entered an unprecedented era of international acclaim and success. High value drama series like The Crown, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad have challenged and enthused audiences across the world with TV drama that is original, complex and non-formulaic.
There is a new appetite among UK drama commissioners and independent producers to develop work along such original lines.
All NFTS students can attend the School’s masterclasses programme, with recent guests including Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve), Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna, Diego Maradona), Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here, We Need to Talk About Kevin), Louis Theroux, and M Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Glass).
"I don’t want to sound dramatic, but (the course) is truly life changing. Thank you all". Douglas Lan, course participant.
