Applications open for Eureka Series emerging producers' initiative

Eureka Series is an intensive 14-week, full-time training course for writers and producers of television drama series from all over Europe. Delivered in partnership with La Fémis, it is an initiative created by the new Series Mania Institute to train professionals in the rapidly changing TV series industry.

Eureka Series will bring together 12 participants (six writers and six producers) of various European nationalities. The programme is aimed at emerging TV series professionals, including, but not limited to, alumni of European film and television schools.

Participants will receive lectures, workshops and masterclasses, and work on their own original projects. The course culminates in a two-week residency, at the end of which projects will be pitched to a jury of broadcasters, including France Télévisions, RAI (Italy) and ZDF (Germany), who collectively form The Alliance.

Candidates must have at least one credit (in writing or producing) either on a broadcast television series or an online drama or a short film or a feature film. This credit may either be professional or gained during training.

The deadline for applications is Friday 14th May 2021.
