Apply Now For Continuing Drama Directors’ Scheme

BBC Drama, supported by BBC Studios and Directors UK, is pleased to announce part two of their continuing drama directors’ scheme.

It was announced in September that nine drama directors would be mentored over the following year on one of the BBC’s continuing dramas (Doctors, Holby City, Casualty & River City).

Having successfully launched part one of the scheme (Doctors), they are now inviting applications from directors with greater experience in film & television to apply for Holby City or Casualty.

As part of their training, successful candidates will receive a full credit on one episode of their assigned programme. If the director has shown that they can meet the standards required, the show aims to hire them within nine months for a full directorial commission. It is their ambition that this will be the first step of an ongoing partnership with each of these directors; and, as their careers develop, so will their relationship with the BBC and the wider television drama community.

Find out more and apply now.

The deadline for applications is Monday 5 February.
