SeriesLab unveils selected projects for its 4th edition!


We are glad to present the 9 European projects that have been selected to participate in the next edition of SeriesLab and the 3 Italian projects chosen for SeriesLab - Italia. They were selected among an impressive total of 133 submissions, coming from all over Europe.

SeriesLab and SeriesLab – Italia will run in parallel from December 2019 until March 2020. The aim is to develop innovative and high-profile TV series projects that can appeal internationally. At the end of the training, the projects will be presented to major key players of the TV industry during the Series Mania Forum (Lille, France), which will be held on 25-27 March 2020.

The selected teams will develop their concepts within small groups of 3 projects, each led by a tutor that will help in generating ideas and structuring the material: Andrea Nobile (Italia), Vincent Poymiro (France) and Anita Voorham (Netherlands) for SeriesLab, as well as Eszter Angyalosy (Hungary) for SeriesLab - Italia. The participants will also get insight on production design, audience design and pitching techniques from highly qualified experts. Head of Studies Nicola Lusuardi (Italy) will supervise both programmes.

The 12 projects, all in early development stage, also reflect the diversity of European genres: from comedy to satire and thriller, from contemporary stories to historic drama, from spy agents to young teenagers.
