1530 to 1630 Writing Thrillers for TV with Jon Gilbert image

From Line of Duty to The Tourist on the BBC to the deluge of ITV and Channel 5 four-parters, the small-screen thriller has never been in such demand. Even multi-protagonist dramas like The White Lotus now find themselves packaged around thriller-mystery hooks in an effort to draw audiences in.

 

Jon Gilbert draws on his own thriller-writing experience to explore why the thriller-mystery-crime story exerts such a powerful hold on commissioners and audiences alike, and how you can use it to your advantage.
