RTÉ has launched StoryLand, a new project inviting new and experienced programme makers to make drama series specifically for the web, aimed at the 19-25 year old audience.
Aspiring and experienced programme makers are invited to make pitches for a 6-part drama series to be webcast in March 2009. From the pitches received, a panel chaired by Irish scriptwriter and actor Mark O’Halloran (Adam & Paul, Garage, Prosperity) will commission 10 new pilot drama series to be webcast on the RTÉ website. Viewers will then vote which pilot episode they would like to see more of, and the winner will be commissioned for a full series.
The closing date for submissions is 17th November 2008. See www.rte.ie/storyland for details on how to apply.
