How to create a TV series that runs and runs and runs image

Watch This Session

Phil Redmond CBE has created three iconic long running TV shows for British TV, each unique and original in their day. Grange Hill, Hollyoaks and Brookside.

His success poses an interesting question…

Why write an episode when you can create an entire series?

With broadcasters, both domestic and international, are desperate for programming in volume – not just hours, but thousands of hours – the economies of scale when creating long running drama series really start to makes sense.

In this session Phil Redmond will share just how he creates iconic shows that run for years, yielding thousands of hours of world class television drama.

Anyone interested in working in continuing drama on television cannot afford to miss this session with one of the UKs most iconic series creators.
