TFL Next -TV Series is an intensive, online workshop addressed to international professionals who want to move forward with their TV Series projects.The aim of the workshop is to offer to international professionals the tools necessary to develop their own original and ambitious TV Series projects.

The workshop is concept-based meaning that participants exclusively work on the concept of their TV series project. In the case of projects based on novels, short stories or other literary works, applicants must present a secured option for the work they wish to adapt.

The workshop is divided into three development sessions:
- a five day-long session, where participants discuss their work in group sessions and one-on-one meetings with their tutors
- Followed by a period of 3 weeks where participants rework their material
- a two day-long session, where participants share and discuss their work again in individual meetings with their mentors and group sessions with other participants.

In addition the participants will also have the chance to develop a strong international network: On top of the script sessions and meeting with industry representatives, participants will gather during special online events aimed at exchanging skills and finding productive collaborations.

Thanks to FOCAL’s partnership with TorinoFilmLab, the applicant(s) of the selected Swiss projects can profit from a full scholarship.
