Second edition of Brit List: TV published

The second edition of the Brit List: TV has been published, identifying the best unproduced screenplays by UK talent as identified by industry.

The Brit List showcases the best unproduced British screenwriting from the past year, as compiled from recommendations by production companies, talent agencies, financiers and broadcasters.

Providing a platform for the writers and their scripts, the List alternates yearly between film and TV screenplays and has a strong track record in getting screenplays made. 2019 marks the second year of television.

The successful writers were announced at an event in London on Monday 18 November, supported by ScreenSkills. Of the 232 scripts put forward, 24 received the minimum number of votes – that is, at least four recommendations - needed to make it on to The Brit List: TV 2019.

The successful screenplays included sci-fi thriller Supercut by Rose Cartwright who has been supported in her writing by the ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund on a mentoring programme delivered by Dancing Ledge.

This year’s list consists of 48% of scripts written by women and 24% by writers from BAME backgrounds. This is the largest proportion of scripts written by women and writers from BAME backgrounds of any Brit List previously published.
