BBC Writersroom is a cross-genre department for scripted content. We work with Drama, Comedy, CBBC, CBeebies, Radio, Online – and others. We work with and develop new and experienced writers.
We are part of BBC Commissioning within BBC Public Service. We work with BBC Studios, BBC in-house and independent producers across the UK from our bases in London, Salford, Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast.
We welcome approaches from Independent companies who have a track record of making quality Drama and Comedy for broadcast, and a history of supportive and creative relationships with writers. We would be happy to meet and discuss whether we could support your Comedy and Drama development slate for the BBC.
Our website has a wealth of online resources in our Writers’ Lab, a Script Library, Industry Opportunities and our Blog with news and features on the latest BBC programmes, help and advice.
From our bases across the UK we run public events (for example Writing for Medical Drama, TV Drama Writers’ Festival and the Scottish Writers’ Festival) and workshops, Q&As and masterclasses at festivals, theatres, writers’ groups and courses.
